CHILDREN

                       FREEDOM

“Your children are not your children, They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”  Kahlil Gibran

If you’ve been reading my last few Blogs, you will probably realize that I am in love with the writings of Kahlil Gibran and have been reading and rereading The Prophet.

I have 4 children, a girl and 3 boys. They are grown now. Before I read Gibran I knew that it was necessary for me to release my children. Not release them from my heart, but release them from my advice. I have let them live their own lives. I have attempted to live the best life I could as an example, but not a perfect example. I’ve made many mistakes. But I did the best I could at the time. I am proud of and love  all of them deeply. Now in my later years. I see them. Each is different. Each is special to me. I am grateful that I’ve had them in my life. Like this hummingbird mother, I let them fly.
