Learning to Let Go

Flowers IIThis week I’m facing probably one of the biggest challenges that I’ll face as a parent, letting my child grow up and make her own decisions. I knew this time would come but a part of me kept thinking I could push it off. That I could keep her (and the rest of them) with me forever. You know, only letting them wander so far and then reeling them back in…

Life doesn’t work that way. No matter how much you want to keep your children home and safe, at some point they have to go out and make their own way. And their own mistakes. The only thing you can do is be there for them and love them through the good times and the bad. And pray that everything you’ve done to this point will help them to make wise choices.
