Jeanette Berry, September,
September conjures up mixed
emotions each year as it rolls around. Mothers of young
children know that September means school! I've heard
it said that the official Mother's Day should be the first day of
school. I don't know that I fully agree with that. I
join my children in having a little bit of a heavy heart as time
draws near that appointed day.
The less regimented, carefree life
of summer is gone. The happy hours spent swimming, roaming
the woods and just plain staying up late are over for awhile.
That always brings a note of sadness.
September and school does have some
blessings. We have a better schedule for our family.
There is excitement in buying new school clothes and books,
although we hate to admit it. There is anticipation about
being with all your friends again. But, my greatest blessing
about the beginning of school is that I can regulate my time so
much better. My time with the Lord is more private. It
is easier to schedule my homemaking responsibilities and still
find time to study, visit, and best of all, have time alone with
September means some of our young
people leave for various colleges in other states. Summer
brought them home to family and friends. Perhaps I am
remembering my own summer vacations from college.
The best word to describe September
is the word change. Change is a part of life, so I guess
that is why September is one of my favorite months. There is
a world of new adventures waiting. Summer has been fun.
We have some happy memories. Now we anticipate September
with lots of fun, learning and hard work. As always, it will
be an adventure.
