A reminder to myself that I get to try again every day.
I saw this picture and I had to catch my breath for a moment.
The focus on him. The wistful look on her face, patiently waiting for attention.
It made me wonder, how often does this happen that I don't even notice. How much time do they spend waiting while I focus on him and his needs.
Balance is the hardest thing. Fairness. Figuring how to get everyone's needs met, when there is just one of you to go around. They all need 100%. But there are four of them and one of me.
This one is about way more than two little girls playing in a puddle. This one is about me letting go. There was a time when I wouldn't have let them do this.
