“you must love in such a way that the person you love feels free”

And this, is the hard part in love.

An this is the difficulty in parenthood.

Loving my children enough to let them go, and let them grow. Loving them enough to allow them their own path.

To Love them, like teaching them to learn how to fly on their own wings.

Nothing more in my life that I have experienced, or thought I understood, about life or Love–Ever taught me as much as being a parent, has taught me.
Nothing. No job, relationship, or professor.
No epiphany or experience, could compare to the knowledge and lessons my Teachers (children) have brought to me in my life.

Loving them, is like learning to love in this way–in which they feel free. Free to just Be.
