Holding On and Letting Go

Kids Count

To this day, though she is an adult, she sometimes sits on my knee and snuggles her head in against my neck and it is a brief, transcendent moment where I am young, she is a baby and that feeling of completeness that is so fleeting, washes over me.

As a parent, holding on and letting go is a walk that we make every day. We wonder if they are happy and safe just as we did when they were children. While our children leave us, some may be a world away, still, they are in our hearts and those are memories that we will always hold on to.

Remember, all kids count.
