I tried to control you.  To tame and shape you into what I wanted.  But always, you challenged me, continuing along an almost predetermined path.  I am no match for nature, for your true spirit.  By stepping back I have watched you grow and reach for the future.

  1. Yes, sometimes we do need to take that step back, don’t we? Otherwise we can choke that growth right off.

      Thanks Jess, who knew that vine in my backyard would be so inspiring.

      Thank you, although I think nature deserves most of the credit. It is always so inspiring.

      Thank you Laura (although that vine grows so fast that sometimes I think it is fully alive!)

  4. So true how letting go can be hard, but they will find the way!
