It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. e. e. cummings
Seemingly lost and a bit anxious this little feathered friend was calling for help the other day and I could not help myself but wonder if his parents would find him in time. Babies grow fast in the animal kingdom and we humans are quite lucky to have the opportunity to parent as long as we do. Soon enough before anyone’s is truly ready the time comes when our little fledgling wings are strong enough for her/him to fly .
Darling Daughter’s return from a 5 days school trip made me realize a few obvious truths.
- She is fast growing into a lovely young woman, I am learning to let her become who she is going to be
- I am trusting that the past 17 1/2 years we spent together, have instilled a bit of our values into her thick mane
- This period in time is a very important step in our future relationship, navigating it smoothly will bring both of us countless joys
- Being a parent is the hardest job I will ever have and without a doubt the most rewarding
Any words for me dear friend as I am learning to transition into this new chapter of my life?
