My responsibly as a mother is the eduction of my children
I’ve been doing that for years now
In a way that is familiar to me
With them close by
But as they get older
Their education will come from places outside the home
And I need to let go
They will be around less often
But they are on their path of learning and experiencing new things
I won’t be involved in their day to day life
But I will be there to support and encourage them
Their mode of development has changed
They need the input of the society at large
And by letting go
I’m allowing them to continue to grow

There is a thought that keeps going round and round
In my head
I feel like I’m caught in a whirlwind
It’s a battle of sorts
That I have with myself
I try to make sense of things
But don’t manage
Is it a matter of letting go?
Or is it something to hold on to?
Am I being fair to others and myself?
What do I need to be doing different?
I’ve been over all these thoughts in my head
And I don’t find any answers
Some issues are simpler than others
And this one is most circuitous
