Church Camp


My boys are going to church camp. Actually three of the four are going. I am a nervous wreck. The last time my boys went on a field trip, there was some kind of accident and I found out about it on the news. Yes…on the news. Thank the good Lord that nothing happened to them, but still… a little gun shy.

I know I complain sometimes about my “me time” or lack there of, as I’m sure most of us busy moms do from time to time; but a whole week…how will I do it? I suppose I could do something constructive like finish a novel…you know, the one I’m writing and perhaps the one I’m reading.  Maybe I’ll sleep later and cook less food and even take my youngest son out a time or two while the others are gone.  There is no doubt that I will worry, worry, worry and pray, pray, pray until they return safely into our waiting arms.

So I am glad that they will be having a lot of fun, playing games, competing in sports and worshiping with their peers.  But truth be told, motherhood has been the greatest reward of this turbulent cycle of life. Although I realize letting go is part of it, I’m glad I still have a little more time to coddle, cuddle and over-protect.

  1. Oh, Judy, I feel for you! Your sons will have a blast, you on the other hand--may worry a bit.

    Try and enjoy the alone time with your youngest (that's who's staying home, right?) And if you want to talk between moms, just drop me a line!

  2. Thanks, Jenny. I'm afraid It is still a little difficult for me to let them go. I am sure they are having fun and I've heard about some of the amazing things that happen when the youth are encouraged to worship together. So, I am looking forward to hearing all about it when they get back. Sure did stay up late last night writing. Will take advantage of some of that quiet time this afternoon.
