I love this quote.
My kids have just had birthdays; my oldest is 20, my youngest is now 18. The quote above has been haunting me over the past few months, because at this stage, I’m reevaluating so many things in my life. My role as mom is slowly becoming less relevant as my kids grow more and more independent. It’s bittersweet because it’s the goal I’ve worked towards since they were born: to raise them as independent beings so that they can go out on their own when the time comes.
But the time is here and it’s hard to let go. And I’m trying to figure out what I’ll fill my life with now.
Hence the connection to the quote above. I sure hope I find those new wings soon.
