Children aren´t coloring books.
You don´t get to fill them with your favorite colors.
(Khaled Hosseini:The Kite Runner)
Family vacation. Every year I wonder, if our children will be willing to spend a week with their old parents...you know, with no internet, no friends, just the four of us. Every year I wonder if this is the last year...I enjoy their company, because during the year there is not so much time for longer conversations without distractions. So I cherish this week and I admit, my children surprise me over and over...I look at them and wonder: how is it possible, that these two interesting young people were todlers a couple of weeks ago? Did I really taught them to speak, to eat with a spoon, to walk? ...We wish the best for our children, all parents do....yet the path they chose is theirs. ...and there is so little I can do.....just love them , unconditionaly, that´s all.
It is that simple.
