Being a parent is not an easy thing.
Every parent has their struggles and worries. Each one as dreams and expectations for their children. But even through the trials that come with parenting, I know it is one of the greatest things that you will ever do. Being a mom has changed my life. I have two guys and three girls. They are my world. My oldest son just turned eighteen, and he recently started his first task. He was hired by a lumber dealer, and though it is truly taxing work, Bret likes it. Of course as his mother, I worry about him being out in the heat all afternoon tearing down trees and laboring so hard. It’s truly taxing for him to keep hydrated and cool. Since he started laboring, he has been to the hospital twice with a heat stroke. Thankfully, the supplier just purchased some new trucks that has laboring AC. Bret said having AC has made his task so much easier. Whenever they need a split from the sun, they sit in their nice air conditioned trucks. Before they had the new trucks, everything they did was out in the blazing overheated sun; they even ate dinner outside. As Bret’s mom, I am so glad that the supplier was able to provide those men with some relief from the seriously overheated environment that they labor in. Bret says that he enjoys his task a lot more now, and he plans on making this task part of his plan for the future. Although parenting has added a lot of stress and worry to my life, this pales in comparison to the joy and fulfillment that being a mother brings.
