Guest Post over at My Rural Mommy!!!

Posted on Feb 21 2013 - 4:39pm by momcafe

Hey friends!!  I am over at My Rural Mommy today sharing one of my favorite stories… about a girl on her own for the first time, and a mom letting go and watching her fly.  Have you ever watched your child make a choice on her own and take that step all alone?  I have.  She was only 7 then, and her courage still amazes me.  This experience forced me to let go… and as hard as it was to do just that-

The result was exhilarating!!!

Come take a look and share your thoughts.  Do you have a story about letting go?  Would love to know.

Find my story over at her place!

    Great story, Chris! My oldest is married and next oldest is a sophomore in college. Talk about learning to let go! It’s hard! I still have two at home that I might or might not be clinging to for a little longer :)

    Um, have I ever mentioned that when I read your words, it feels like I could have said them? I think we have twin personalities. ;-) Hopping over there to read.
