“Kids don’t stay with you if you do it right.  It’s the one job where, the better you are, the more surely you won’t be needed in the long run.”

– Barbara Kingsolver

Well, isn’t that the truth.

Bit by bit, I see these kids spread their wings and fly a little higher on their own.  Sometimes they come back for a little encouragement but then they’re running again, off to the next adventure.  Their eyes are on the horizon, confident that BrightSide and I are behind them no matter what.

Which is exactly as it should be.
