I never imagined this would be so difficult. My oldest turned six today. Six seems so old. He's officially out of the preschool stage, and that's all I've ever known as a mommy. I'm treading new waters here.
Every time I looked at him today something inside me hurt, and I had to ask myself,
"When did he grow up? He looks like such a big boy right now."
Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. Surely I have a delightful inheritance. Psalm 16:5-6
