A lifetime of worry and love

My sister was telling me about how worried she is about her son's further education. Where to send him and for what course? How to guide him along the right career choice? etc etc.

We both concluded that as mothers, we never stop worrying about our kids. We worry about them during pregnancy, then when they are little babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

We worry about what their education, which kindergarten to send them to, then which school, college and university. Then we worry about their jobs.

We worry about their life partner choices. We worry about them when they start having kids of their own. We never stop worrying about our kids. Not even when they are adult and start worrying about us in return, not even then.

We will worry about them for a lifetime but being a mother and worrying and loving our children is the best feeling in the world. Motherhood is really a life changing event.
