Monday, October 6

I am lucky enough to have so far raised a daughter who asks for and values my opinion, but weighs each matter and follows her heart.  She looks up to me and feels shaded, but not over-shadowed by my grown-up branches.  I allow her to make her own mistakes, (a very hard thing to do), but one that teaches the importance of our decisions whether made in haste or not.  Too often I feel like my answer is "No," but I know she finds security in my boundaries as well.  She's only twelve, some days it feels like shes' going on 22, (how'd she get so smart?), or she's reliving eight -- and it's good to just let her be little and quietly play make believe in her room with miniatures.
