A Challenging Dance


I Am
I am soaking it up and seeking more.
I wonder about the speedy slowness of time.
I hear my children growing inch by inch.
I see God planting His purposes in their hearts.
I want to keep them close and set them free.
I am soaking it up and seeking more.

I pretend I can be Mommy and Me simultaneously.
I feel the pull of mothering and the tug of othering.
I touch words to form stories and tales.
I worry I'll miss the firsts and lasts of my babies.
I cry that this mothering dance consumes my every ounce.
I am soaking it up and seeking more.

I understand mothering matters.
I say God's plan is perfect.
I dream of time to pour out my heart into words.
I try to mother and other; doing them both well.
I hope to leave a legacy worth passing on.
I am soaking it up and seeking more.

  1. Love this! I especially like your line, "I feel the pull of mothering and the tug of othering." That was always my feelings, too.
