A time set aside just for me to gather my thoughts, share my ideas, and to communicate with the world.

Life is Painful Sometimes!

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?


  1. I'm in junior in highschool and I was with a guy for over a year. He was my "first love" and I am still getting over our breakup. I have to see him everyday and it is the hardest thing i have ever had to go through in my life. I know I am young but sometimes its hard to see that things are going to get better. Everyone says I am going to be stronger one day and I am better without him but the pain is just so overwhelming right now.

  2. I know exactly what you are talking about. The first time I experienced that, it was like my heart literally was torn into two. It hurts to the bone. I can tell you things will get better, but you will always remember what it was like. I know for my son, it is devastating for him. You are young, and unfortunately you will have a few more broken hearts, but please know that your pain is real, and it hurts just the same as it would as an adult. Life experience's do make you stronger, once you get over them BUT until you do, you won't think that. You sound like you just need to talk about it, I am here or you can email me at pollardtl@gmail.com
