Today my daughter turns 17!
This morning I sat down before this piece of water color paper that I had gently painted yesterday - just a square of color. I took my pen and saw the wee figure. Once he was revealed I added the rest.
Then the thought came to mind: some paths we walk alone.
My daughter enters the age where she has to start walking paths alone.
As her parent I have to trust, even if there are heart-threads that want to cling.
There are paths I have to walk alone, too.
Grace comes and even if walking alone we don't feel lonely.
For this, I am most grateful.
And it is this I wish for my daughter on her birthday.
