Strong and Independent

After this whole year of being gone,the last three out of her life, and her out of mine. We spent some time together today and it was good. We went to the park and she wore me out. I sat awhile and watched her play. She is so independent, to a point where it's scary but it's also good. She will be a strong woman in this lifetime, I can see it. It's scary to have a daughter and know that she will experience the heartaches and joys of womanhood. She is already too independent, I know I can't be that controlling type of mother with her, also because that is not me. I've had friends with nagging mothers who got all involved in their love lives and such, my mom knew when I was making mistakes but she let me make them. She let me live,love, laugh and cry and she was there....always in the end to tell me it was going to be ok and that I was a strong, independent woman thahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gift didn't need to be needed. I had a hard time this past year and a half but I did it because I knew I could, and I knew my mom and daughter would be there when I was done.
I plan to let her be the strong independent woman she was born to be.
And I will be there when she needs me.
What a good day it was, today.
Also, I taught her how to swing without being pushed. :)

I have a very independant daughter too Dane. She's going to be in high school this school year and I'm scared shitless. I know she will be ok though because even though she's only almost 14 she's one of the strongest people I know. She tough like me and my Mom and my Gram and your Mom and you and your Gram. Yea we got this crazy life on lock cousin. Much luv - G.
