In our family, the last several years has brought about a lot of change... High School and college graduations, a marriage, an engagement, an empty nest, and parents with health issues....
It's been ALOT just like with many of you. My husband and I started to question if we had gotten it all right. When you know you've given every ounce of love you had and poured your heart and soul into every moment that's a hard question to really put a microscope to. So if this is a place in your life where peace has not come yet let me share this with you…
During a sermon one Sunday our pastor said this "My next step is to allow those I love to take their next step". It became apparent to me in that moment I needed to let go of trying to keep them all close and protected so we ALL could " take our next step". That was a freeing revelation! Didn't I know that already? Obviously not! This is so simple but yet so difficult to do as a parent. You know the saying " the hardest part of parenting is letting go!"... no truer words were ever spoken! Thanks Clay for the wisdom this mom needed to hear! If you know of a parent who is struggling to "let go" please share this with them.
