“I Can Do It”
Those four little words that brought me back to being a mom with young children… Those words “I can do it”
rang clearly as my 88 year old father said them yesterday. As I tried to help him button his pants, I smiled as I realized he was no different then my 3 year old son was when he wanted so badly to button his own pants…
I’ve come full circle with my children and now my parents….
Then there’s me, waiting in the wings for my time to say “I can do it” I’m not looking forward to that moment, and I pray the years go by slow enough to enjoy life everyday.
For now I continue to be aware of just how precious life is and how fleeting the moments are…
Finding that balance between
“care taking” of someone else and
“Taking Care” of myself is a fine line, but a line that must be drawn,
And I know …. ” I can do it!”
In awe of life
