She turned 16 yesterday. This morning at approximately 10:45, our state granted her a drivers license.
A mother’s heart walks out the door every time a child leaves the house. You would think I would be a little more at ease this time around. She’s not the first in this household to get a drivers license, to leave the home without an adult. But it’s not any easier. Do I trust Him a little more ? I think so– I hope so.
Now that the oldest is an adult, I, we both, still go into a frenzy if she is more than 15 minutes late. Though, they all are good about calling to let us know if they are running late. Still, a mother’s heart walks where her children walk. And now it sees 16 from a 40 year old rear view mirror.
One child from this home still awaits to go through this milestone… I wonder…how much more can my heart take. I wait to see the days when their hearts walk. As for this mother, I think mine will never stop walking. It’s a good thing though. There is grace for every need.
