Life lately in 2016
As we approach Thanksgiving this week, I start to ponder on the people, things and experiences that I am grateful for in my life. It has been a long year with some highs and a few lows. I am thankful for good health and that the girls continue to thrive. It’s a different journey now with Chiara and Ines taking the lead on most of their undertakings while I act simply as a monitor to make sure things flow smoothly. The process has not been easy, there’s a lot of letting go and blind faith on my part. But that’s what raising older kids is all about, isn’t it? I’m somewhat reassured by this passage I read in a book: “Let your children teach you who they are as they invite you to join in the discovery of their becoming.” It’s not easy for an alpha mom like me but I’m trying.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
