I follow my children on Facebook and other Social media platforms. But that's not my sole barometer for knowing them.
Knowing them is my soul barometer.
Yet, despite good intentions there are still many levels and concepts I've missed and messed over the years.
Because other than being my children they are human beings.
People are complicated.
My best days began when I was able to speak with my mom as her equal adult child.
Adult. Child. Respecting her place yet asserting mine with respect.
At some point parents will need to get to know the PEOPLE in our lives.
Believe it or not they actually level up at some point.
I adore my children. I am on their complicated struggle to become people and sometimes that means fearlessly facing the adult who raised them.💞
