The most difficult job here on earth that one will undertake,
Parenting is not for punks!
It is also not a part-time job,
That you can work in when it is best for you,
Need your undivided attention,
You are tired..
You wanna read or chill,
You would rather go for a walk alone,
Choosing to make that ultimate decision and become a parent,
Circumvents all that...
I can remember being a young mother living in Germany,
Was absolutely clueless,
And my mom and aunts were in Florida,
What I had to learn to do,
With a quickness,
Is learn by doing,
Making my child my first priority,
Was it hard,
Heck to the yeah,
Particularly since his dad was away a lot,
But the realest thing is that I had made the ultimate decision,
And come heck or highwater,
It was largely on me to make it work...
So for years the kids were my focus,
Because I knew that the day would come when they would,
Need me less,
And whatever I had planned to do,
Through the grace I would be able to do,
So if you have no children yet,
And aren't ready to give up a lot of 'YOU' time,
Think about it,
And if you already have made the decision to parent,
Sorry, but it is no longer for the most part about YOU...
But about them...
BE BLESSED AND BE A BLESSING!
