The days come and go. Imperceptibly our lives change. We grow older and hardly aware of it. Our children grow up and we hardly notice. Then, suddenly, we come to a time and we realize that our child is a child no longer. They have become a young adult, ready to take their first step into adulthood.
We are grateful that we have been able to bring them this far. We are thankful for the strength to cope with the stresses and responsibilities of rearing them. And we give thanks for the pleasure and pride we have had in them.
Now we realize they are children no longer. Only another year, two, three and they will begin to go from our homes to find their own way in the world.
We ask ourselves, have we truly prepared them for this? Have we done enough, taught them enough? We are almost afraid to let them go. Yet it was for this that we raised them, that they might grow up to take their places in the world.
