Today is a big day, boy, I’m telling you!
It’s my first day of school and I feel worried, its true!
I don’t like being away from my mom or my dad
I feel worried and scared and that feels so bad.
My insides are squirmy, I feel full of fear.
I’ll be far away and not so near
to the two people who mean most to me now.
How do I get through this big deal, tell me how!
I start crying and say, I don’t want to go.
I want to stay here! Then I take my toy and throw
and it smashes right down onto the floor, what a fright!
I threw it down with all of my might.
My mom came in my room right after the smash
and said, “Are you okay? How are you doing Cash?”
I’m scared and I don’t want to go to that place
I feel worried so I have a big pout on my face.
I’m scared of new people, new walls and new floors
I am scared of new smells and new school room doors.
I don’t want to make friends and I’m worried you see
that they will be worried and scared, just like me.
My mom said that I will be okay
and how I am feeling is a very normal way.
My mom said that she feels worried and scared too,
but sometimes we do what we have to do.
With the power that comes from way up above.
God gives us all strength and he does it with LOVE.
Doing scary things teaches us to be brave
and God is right with us, he has the power to save!
Starting new things is not very easy
but sometimes those things end up being quite breezy.
So my mom took my hand and we started to walk
and we took our time and we had a great talk.
We talked about school and the things that go on
when I am there with friends and we all sing songs.
And so I went to school, my very first day
and you’ll never believe what I’m going to say.
I love to sing and I love playing games!
I met some new friends and I remember their names
there is Charlie and Sue, and the guy with the hat,
He shared his new toy, a ball and a bat!
At first, school was scary, I have to say
but after talking to mom, she helped me pray
and ask my dear God, for help when I’m worried.
Please send me some angels, they’ll come in a hurry!
I made new friends on my first day of school
they are all really nice and I think that they’re cool!
Today I used a tool for when I feel scared
I love my mom and I love that she shared
the way I can talk to God and just say
the way that I feel and fold my hands and pray.
Talking about the way that I feel
Is healthy and good and made it all real.
I shouldn’t keep things in, all jumbled and strange.
I can talk and get help and start to arrange
my thoughts and my feelings and that is way better.
We can help sort it out by talking together.
My two children are beautiful and perfect, in my eyes. Those are the same eyes that God sees us with. Romans 5:8, but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. If that doesn’t give you chills, you are not alive.
The love of a mother is crazy and strong and if there were words to express it, we would have the best song! See how my mind works now. Can you imagine if every thought had to rhyme? It makes me crazy sometimes..haha
Anyway, my children are as different as night and day. My daughter is a strong force to be reckoned. She is independent, social, aware, kind, creative, loud, bossy, expressive and the list could go on. My son loves to be by my side all the time. He is shy, sweet, generous, strong, fiery, talented, imaginative and destructive, again, the list is extensive.
So that being said, my son will not go to Sunday school, he will not leave my side when we are at the playground. If we are at swimming lessons, he checks to see that I am there every 5 minutes. He hollers in the same room, “Love you mommy!” just to make sure I am still there and aware of his presence. I love it.
On Sunday, my husband and I drop our daughter off at Sunday school and she doesn’t even turn around. She is so social, independent and trusting that she just flies off into the Sunday school experience and embraces the pure joy of being with her friends and teachers. I love that too.
They are so perfectly different and so perfectly painted just for me. God’s most beautiful blessings. I love how they inspire me everyday. To be stronger, more patient, more powerful, more fearless and more tenacious. Because of them, I am a Christian, because this life is way better than the life I was living before. I want the best for them.
Please let me know about your children. Comment, share and let me know what your life is like as you raise your munchies and lead them through some worrisome and scary situations. God bless us all as we go through this day as moms and dads and children of you, the LORD MOST HIGH! YAY! Amen!
This passage in the Bible is so beautiful. Thank you BibleGateway.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
