I shared this with a friend before, but would want to keep a note of it to remember how I was feeling on this turn of year.
One of my daughters had her birthday on September... and the morning of her birthday I asked, what did she want for her birthday... I was taken aback by her answer...
"I should be living on my own at this age".
I took that by the heart
I somehow know that this is going to happen.
I have never 'owned' any of my children, because I know they belong to the world, they will drive their own lives, but have I totally unleashed them?
I cried for days... realising and saying what I have written earlier...
At the end of the day... there is only one left... my dear old self
