There are two things we should give our children.
One is roots,
the other is wings.
A hug felt in your bones.
It lingers on long after you’ve parted ways.
It settles deep into your spirit like a love you’ve known was there all along.
And yet it yearns to run free and wild.
It is the constant struggle as a parent.
To love so fiercely that you feel like your heart will explode.
Then let that love go out into the wild unknown, when all you want to do is hold it tight forever.
It’s the wholehearted love of a mother for her child.
