Journaling: It seems that i've always followed my mother. When I was young, I'd follow her in work, in prayer, in chores. As I grew older, I followed her in motherhood, falling into those familiar patterns I had sworn I never would. I heard my mohter's words coming out of my mouth. I learned what she had known for so long- that teaching your children never ends, it just changes. Now, I still follow her. The pace is a little slower, the steps not as sure, but she's still way ahead of me- in patience, in forgiveness, in love. I'm trying to learn the lessons as fast as I can, but I'm way behind.
I took this pic because grocery shopping with mom is a chore i have to do once a month, taking time out of my ?busy? life to do it. but i know that one day, i won't view it as a chore, that i will miss this time spent one on one with my mom and the lessons that she continues to teach me.
