If I knew then what I know now . . .
Five years ago, if you had asked where I wanted to be in 5 years, my answer would have been so much different than it is now.
Five years ago, the children were still at home and the drama they created in their lives and ours consumed much of my time. Gladly, I might add.
Now they are gone and building their own careers and their own families. They have their own partners, homes, families and friends. They are in effect, creating their circle of trust outside of the environment we spent years developing and nurturing.
Good for them! That's how it should be!
Uh huh, I know it, up here in my head. The thing is, my head and my heart are not always on the same electrical current. Every once in a while the heart still gets a jolt when messages from the head finally gets through.
What excellent advice for those of us with children at the cusp of adulthood.
