"" Writer's Wanderings: My Child

My Child

I watched you, my child,
As you took that first big step to get on the school bus this morning.
You reached and stretched to get a hold and pull yourself up.
And as I watched,
I thought of how much easier that step will be each year as you grow.

I thought of all the other big steps you will take in your life.
Many of those you will reach and stretch for at first,
But as you grow and mature,
Each step will be a little easier to reach.

Then I thought of you
Standing and watching your children take their first big step.
I prayed that you would feel the same warmth,
And pride,
And love,
That I felt that moment your foot left the ground.
And I realized how God had truly blessed me.
