"Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash." -Harriet Rubin
Side note: The daughter comes home tomorrow (big happy smiles) for a week. She said she doesn't know why this quote came to her when she saw the image but it was the first one that popped in her mind so she sent it.
It has me thinking, with her coming home and my dusty parent hat getting a brush off, that it is kind of like parenting. At first you are in total control of your child, what they eat, when they sleep etc etc. but then you must slowly unleash them to find their own way in the world. Such a hard thing to do. I found I was in a mourning period for a while, but then something happens and I think you both feel a strange sense of freedom. There is perhaps a greater gift in letting go than in holding on.
Happy Weekend, see ya'll on Monday!
