My college graduate started her new job yesterday. I've had the enormous pleasure of watching her grow in to a really amazing young woman. As parents we start the all important process of 'letting go' early on. Subsequently 'letting go' more and more along the way.
Sometimes it's a prominent time - like the first day of kindergarten,or dropping off at college! Other times it's more subtle as the years pass. Be mindful of those times in particular. They have their own way of pulling at your heart strings too.
The business of 'letting go' is bittersweet....relish in the amazing process.
