There comes a time in a child's life When we have to let them go. We continue to care. We are always there, But we must allow them to grow. As they take each faltering step We must stand tenderly by; And watch as they learn center With evey twist and turn As every new challenge they try. Although our hearts may be trembling As we feel for each pain they endure, We can comfort and guide But we must stand aside To give them the room to mature. So it is with all of us, The children of Our Father above. He wisely stands back, Though our souls nothing lack. They expand in the fullness of LOVE.

    How true Sylvia! Many parents have their children growing physically without growing emotionally and spiritually. There comes a time when parents have to take on the role of the observer and allow their children to make their own judgment. Well penned!
