I Will Stop Reaching For That Mountaintop

    Speaking for mom and myself, we found that in raising you and your brother and sister, it all came in stages. Some overlap, but mostly are distinct. And each wonderful. not more wonderful than any other stage, but each in its own way. We loved the stage you are at now, and that you are now starting to see morph into the next, when independence starts to appear. We also loved when you all became more self reliant and mom and I could take those couples walks around the block. Then later, as teenagers and high schoolers, when we could make away trips. And now, perhaps the most blessed stage, as adult friends with each of you, being included in your lives. We would not give up any of these stages, but each subsequent stage built on the one before it and covered the loss of its predecessor with grace.

      Love getting this perspective from you 🙂 I often wonder what we will think looking back on these days, and I pray it is exactly along the lines as you described! I love this stage of being adult friends too 😉
