I think whole-heartenly the worst pain that a mom bears, other than Child birth… is watching your child experience a broken heart! The absolute worst feeling in the world, the experience in which you receive the most growth, and the best opportunity to pull closer to HIM!
I remember mine on a high school level, and then again, several times as an adult! Something you never forget! I always ask myself, and have asked my kids, “What did you learn from this, and how will it make you stronger? Life always teaches you lessons with each experience that it brings you…. the key is…. and I didn’t realize this until a few go-a- rounds in life, is what it shows you, from repeating the lesson over again!
I think God is all his Glory, has a sense of humor in all of this as well. I don’t know about you, but I remember (looking back now it’s funny) the silliness of my “first love.” I was convinced, at that particular time, that Life as I knew it was over after my first dramatic break-up. My son and I laugh about it now, or should I say I still tease him, about how he was convinced his eighth grade love was the one for life!
How many of you remember your first love? First heart break? What did you learn from it?
