I Had No Idea

It was a revelation –
I had no idea they loved me.
In my neuroses I thought
I’d failed. Thought I wasn’t
worthy. Thought I hadn’t
made a difference with my life.
I don’t think they can know
the power in their words.

Sometimes we just need to get out of the way…

One of the most difficult things in life is to get out of the way and allow those we love to learn the lessons they need to learn and face the challenges they need to face. But why would we want to deny those we love the opportunity to grow?
