Living life in the carpool lane..

It was a scene from the Criminal Minds season premier that I saw a few nights ago..

WARNING:  Slightly spoiler-ish.. skip the paragraph ahead if you haven’t seen the episode and you are looking forward to it.

An agent’s wife and child have had their lives under a threat of danger, causing the wife and child to go into protective custody.  The agent’s wife goes to the agent that is in the hospital to talk to him.  She’s obviously feeling a wide range of emotions.  She’s scared, anger, sad.. worried.  However, the minute she brings their son into the room, she sucks it all in and musters up a smile for the little guy.

It’s her portrayal of that strength in front of her son that I found suddenly profound on my long commute to work this morning.

A mother has this profound ability to make things seem “ok” in front of their children.

The world could seem to be crumbling around them, yet, they have the ability to look and act so strong.. especially when it comes to their children.

It’s amazing.

Could I be that woman?

Could I be THAT strong in the face of adversity when my kids are involved?

Could I ever muster up that much courage and that much strength for the sake of my children?

It seems that something happens to people.. women especially.. when they become mothers.. they learn of this sudden courage.. and strength.. and this love that they have never known existed until that point..

When the Lord blesses me with the gift of children.. would that be me too?

If I were to be faced with something I feel I cannot do.. but have to do alone.. could I do it?

I guess only time will tell.. and I know that.. like always.. the Lord will provide..

I guess it’s just one of those things that has to be experienced and felt once I do have a child of my own..

Because school has started up again, I have made this “resolution” to stop watching too much TV while studying.  It’s actually helped a lot and I have gotten a lot done than what I used to when the TV was on while I was doing work.  I was too distracted by the Jon and Kate re-runs and anything and everything that was on the Food channel..

I have found myself NOT watching TV again.. and well.. while it’s made me quite productive.. it’s made me feel less in-tune with pop culture.. especially since.. the TV that I DO watch when I’m done.. are the endless episodes of the Golden Girls on WEtv and the Hallmark Channel..

I did watch some TV on Monday.. they play two episodes of the Big Bang Theory on CBS.. they play one at 8pm.. then they shove How I Met Your Mother and Two And A Half Men in between another episode.  I dont mind, those are all pretty funny shows.  I still enjoy the re-runs of the Big Bang Theory.  Who would have thought that a bunch of physics geeks living across the hall from an aspiring actress would make for funny TV?

I guess it’s not too bad that I am on a TV-marathon-watching hiatus.. shows are on their summer hiatus now too.. so all it really is are a bunch of re-runs..

I think I may have to lift the TV-watching-while-homeworking ban once LOST comes back on.. the final season!  Oh boy.. can’t wait!

It makes the inner “couch potato” in me all giddy!!
