give them roots and wings

September 17, 2013

mama and her babesmama and her babesmama and her babesYou give them roots to grow in love,
You give them wings to reach for the stars,
You set me free to be who I am,
Just by being who you are.

These lyrics are from a song called “Roots and Wings” that my mom would play for us when we were younger. Sometimes who I am is crazy (and I remember my mom being a bit of the same, while lovely at the same time… hi mom!), but I’m praying that my every day spent molding my girls really lets them have fun with childhood and explore what it is they love. It’s an honor to be their mother and an honor to see them grow (even filled with the crazy parenting moments). Just like my mom helped mold my own roots and wings, I’m hoping I’m doing the same for my girls. I’m thankful that my parents gave me wonderful memories of childhood.
