Better than the way we had

Snowy spine

Gods, moment of panic. I realized it was almost 8:30 and the daughter has a final at 10 and had not yet appeared.

Endings, endings. Which invariably lead to beginnings. Somehow four years passed. Somehow a year passed. Somehow I have two adults.

I tell myself: you got them to adulthood. You raised them to be responsible, caring people. You gave them everything you could: every drop of love, every bit of advice, active worry and instruction. Your watch has ended. It's up to them now.

They will succeed. They will fail. You taught them about both. You also tried to teach them about grace. You gave them wings.

Now they have to use them.

Let them use them.
