I Cried, He Just Didn’t Know It

He started off slow. Oh, he fell a number of times…but he was determined. He got back up and walked the length of the long hallway completely on his own. I cried, he just didn’t know it.

She mastered her bike without the training wheels! Oh, she fell a number of times…but she was determined. She got back up and rode the length of the road. I cried, she just didn’t know it.long road

He picked up his backpack and lunch box. He kept biting his lip because he was nervous…..but he was determined. He got out of the car and held my hand. He got to the door, turned loose and walked down the long hall to his kindergarten room. I cried, he just didn’t know it.

She got her high school diploma. Oh, she struggled some of the times…but she was determined. She walked down that aisle and received her document. I cried, she just didn’t know it.

He found a dorm room. Oh, he struggled some of the times….but he was determined. He moved in and walked down that hall for a year; then he moved again, and again. I cried, he just didn’t know it.

She graduated with a bachelor’s degree. Oh, she messed up a couple of times…but she was determined. She finally buckled down and studied and ended with a great GPA. I cried, she just didn’t know it.

He got married. Oh, he dated a few times without finding her…but he was determined. He walked down that church aisle to meet his bride at the altar. He married he girl of his dreams. I cried, he just didn’t know it.emotion-556794_640

She got her master’s degree. Oh, she worked a full-time job while taking classes and it was tough…but she was determined. She was hired, drove to the city everyday and got great experience. I cried, she just didn’t know it.

He got a promotion. Oh, he had to take his bride and move to a city they weren’t familiar with…but he was determined. It was an incredible opportunity and they explored their new city together. I cried, he just didn’t know it.

My children just started walking…and I blinked.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

  1. Hi Tamara, I couldn’t find a comment link on your “about” page. I wanted you to know that the Paleo Diet post I promised you is up. (I tried not to make it offensive. But that could be a possibility to some readers. Hope not.) Thanks for the question. I also wrote another about it long ago and you can find it through my search engine. Blessings,
