Hey friends!! I am over at My Rural Mommy today sharing one of my favorite stories… about a girl on her own for the first time, and a mom letting go and watching her fly. Have you ever watched your child make a choice on her own and take that step all alone? I have. She was only 7 then, and her courage still amazes me. This experience forced me to let go… and as hard as it was to do just that-
The result was exhilarating!!!
Come take a look and share your thoughts. Do you have a story about letting go? Would love to know.
Find my story over at her place!

Great story, Chris! My oldest is married and next oldest is a sophomore in college. Talk about learning to let go! It’s hard! I still have two at home that I might or might not be clinging to for a little longer 🙂
Oh WOW Marty!!! You have had all kinds of seasons of “letting go” haven’t you?? We can all learn from you, my new friend!! Thanks so much for reading and sharing… 🙂 So grateful.

Um, have I ever mentioned that when I read your words, it feels like I could have said them? I think we have twin personalities. 😉 Hopping over there to read.
OOOOOOH!!! I love that we have TWIN personalities!! (Would you have said that??) Now every time I write something, I will think of you and wonder… “What would my twin say??”. 🙂 Such a blessing our friendship is already!
