A mother’s love for her kids is so powerful.  It was a sunny yet breezy day last Wednesday in the neck of my woods.  I came home from work with all intentions to have dinner, relax and have an early night to bed.  However, upon driving to my drive way I realised my husband and neigbours on our lawn with my husband kneeling down.  Hubbie approached me and said “I will tell you something, donot scream“.  Ladies to my horror our neighour’s 14 year old son hung himself in the garage.

As a mother I literally felt like my heart leaped out of my chest and hit the pavement.  I got an instant headache with throbbing to the front and things got a little blury for a while.  I was so much in shock.

The other neighbour said she heard him playing his trumpet in the garage and this kid was such a pleasant, playful, joyful kid.

He had just returned from Canada where he had just visited his father and was back less than 24 hours.

I was sick with ear infections and had in drains in my ears so I was not able to attend the funeral but hubbie did go.  We cooked and took them a meal on Sunday.

Mothers we have a tough job whether our kids are little or grown, mothering is just a tough job even tougher when dealing with divorce.  I pray for ALL mothers that we may lean strongly on our Lord for guidance.

Love ya mothers.
