Growing Pains

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning 
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile 
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness 
And I have to sit down for a while 
The feeling that I’m losing her forever 
And without really entering her world 
I’m glad whenever I can share her laughter 
That funny little girl 

Slipping through my fingers all the time 
I try to capture every minute 
The feeling in it 
Slipping through my fingers all the time 
Do I really see what’s in her mind 
Each time I think I’m close to knowing 
She keeps on growing 
Slipping through my fingers all the time

    Lil Izzle is all grown up! Such wonderful pictures, Mandy. You’re doing an outstanding job raising those beautiful babies. Rest in the comfort and peace of how the Lord cares and looks after each of the little ones (and us too) when we can’t. You’ve managed to teach Mr. T to look at the camera… Nothing is impossible for you super mom!!!
