Let Her Go

Today she let go
My finger for the first time
Crossed the road alone


It is scary to watch the first time our kids cross the road alone.
But it is just the beginning. We need to develop the strength to let them do their own things, chart their own paths. Fight the urge to protect them at all times.


In response to Brett Christensen’s prompt “alone”. Thank you, Bret.
