    Funny post here Li-ling. especially when you command your daughter to do things and she does whatever she wants:)

    Sounds like no one can help us let go and trust than kids, mainly because we don’t have a choice when it comes to them.

    Kids are great people to learn from because they are so much in the moment. They don’t remember what happened yesterday and don’t care about tomorrow – they’re here now!

    Like you talk about your cake post, I’ve found that I have to do my part but then let go and trust. When I have no control over the outcome at some point, positive vibes, prayer and trust are all I have left.

      Ahh…Vishnu, I take it you don’t have kids yet. They are both uniquely amazing and so exasperating at the same time.
      The great lesson I keep learning is that she may be ‘of’ me, but she is so uniquely her own self.

      I doubt that anyone can completely ‘let go’ when it comes to their own children. Parents remain parents for life, I think the lesson in ‘letting go’ means learning to keep our mouths shut and letting them get on with their own life journeys.
