As a mom, it is natural to be concerned for your children from the time they are born until forever. It doesn't matter how old your children get or how capable they become, a mom never stops thinking about and worrying about her children.
My 22 years old is a full-time student and soon-to-be graduate of The University of Texas Austin and works a full-time job. The thought her zipping in and out of Austin traffic on I-35 and her having to come home after dark alone keeps me in constant prayer for her safety and well-being.
My 13 years old loves skateboarding, playing video games and being social with his friends. Unfortunately, COVID has required us to strategize his social life. We allow him to spend time at our local skate park, because at least it's outside. I worry, however, that he and the teenagers he meets up with are not always social distancing. Lord, please help him make wise choices and keep him COVID-free.
My 7 month old loves playing fetch, rolling in and eating the grass, and sticking as close to me as possible. He had to go to the emergency room due to a laceration on his ear. I was not thrilled that I had to drop him off and leave him. I wasn't convinced they would take good-enough care of him. He was visibly apprehensive as I handed over his leash, and my heart was heavy until he was back in my cared.
Whether it's my two biological babies or my fur-baby, my worry, care and concern for them will always be the same.
