When I look at the world, I feel insignificant and small.
Can I make a difference? No, not really. Not at all.
Then I turn to my children and see, the world in their eyes is me.
The hours spent talking and playing is never a waste.
I’m teaching them about values, and laying a strong base.
When I die, no crowds will morn or monuments stand erect.
Those accolades are saved for the world’s most elect.
But my life and legacy will live on, all because three little monkeys called me mom.
Oh yes, I recall those feelings while raising my kids. (I was a stay at home mom and my husband worked out of town, which kinda made me a single mom.) Yes you are definitely making a difference and doing something so very, very and most important! There’s nothing like witnessing successful, happy, adult kids, and having your grown daughter say, “Thank you, mom, for keeping an eye on us and for everything you did. Who knows what trouble I would’ve gotten into if you hadn’t been there for us.”
The time goes by so very fast… Enjoy! 😉
