A Quote

I've just finished reading a book called "The Gift of an Ordinary Day, A Mothers Memoir." You can check it out HERE. The author (Katrina Kenison) just happens to have 2 boys (like me) and she talks about them going through adolescence and the process of letting go. She also talks about change in their lives... how their life was turned up side down and the road "back." The similarities to my life were pretty amazing. It gave me a lot of food for thought about holding on and letting go at the same time when it comes to our kids growing up. I think adolescence starts this journey.... for both the parent and the child. Anyway she had some great quotes so I thought instead of wordless Wednesday (partially because I came up with nothing..haha) I would share one of her quotes.

"When all's said and done, all roads lead to the same end.
So it's not so much which road you take, as how you take it."
- Charles De Lint
