Today, I will take our youngest to register for kindergarten at our local elementary school. He will join his big brother, neighbors, and his fellow friends from preschool and soccer. It will be a good thing. The journey of milestones continues.
Do you remember when you started kindergarten? Your children? Your grand children? Life seems to fly by in a blink at times. I do remember my kindergarten years. I was an introvert like our son Bryan, but super patient and encouraging teachers year after year brought me out of my shell and into a confident young lady ready for college and adult life. I am here now. I am the mother.
Motherhood is filled with surprises. Some moms cry when their kids go to Kindergarten. Not me. I rejoice! I am thankful we have brought our boys this far, and I am confident that God will lead them with their little lights shining for Jesus into the public school they attend. We take them to church, we pray with them daily, and we know that God has them held tighter than we do.
|The universe is one great kindergarten for man. Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson. The mountain teaches stability and grandeur; the immensity and change. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes–every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.
