Life Inside the Glass House - Kids

Damn my Muse. When she strikes and I get the urge to write she just will not be quiet. Hmmm...you're thinking, ha...your muse is just like you.

As I finished my earlier blog this morning, (yikes, why do I write at 2:30 am?) I looked at the posting date on that nifty calendar to the right of one's blogs. It hit me; it's my daughter's 18th birthday. Since she is my youngest, this became a source of more musings. Yippee. My obligation as a mom is finally over. Both my kids have reached their majority. Ha, ha, ha.

You don't believe that and neither do I. My kids have been the center of my life for a very long time. Just a few more years and I will have been a mom longer than I was an individual alone. Such a life-long commitment.

Hey, I have complaints about my kids (I have two) all the time. When will he finally start college? When will she finally get a job? When will they both be stable enough financially and emotionally to finally move out? Even potential AdultFriendFinder buddies wonder about my family commitments. My 85 year old father living with me and my two....ahem....adult children. Okay, ages 18 and almost 20 are just older teens, but still...

They are my heart and the source of both pride and pain. I wouldn't trade them for riches, or power, or my own immortaliity. So, although she won't read this on her 18th birthday, some of you will. And you'll know just a little about life inside the glass house and how deeply I love them.

My children are the source of the richness in my life, the origin of my power as a woman who procreated, and the spring of my own immortality. This is why I love them so deeply.

So, that is why my Muse wouldn't let me sleep.

Outstanding!!!!
Cherish your children for soon they will leave the house and your life will change as much as it did the day they entered it.

As a man I wandered looking for purpose. As a father I have found that purpose. My children bring out the best in me. I would gladly give my life to protect thiers. As long as they exist my life has purpose. They are the source of all that I am.
