I grew up in a family of three – my mother, my brother, and myself. Life and circumstances made us a very tightly woven little trio. My mother was a single mom superhero as she worked full-time and raised two children. She had a way of making the smallest of things special. I have so many happy memories of holidays, traditions, and tender moments we shared together.
As I grew older, I began to realize how much my mother had sacrificed for my brother and me. The more I realized her sacrifice, the more devoted to her I became. As I entered my late teens, there were moments of thick tension in our home as my mother and I both struggled between holding on and letting go. It was natural for us to experience that sort of tension – I think most teens and parents do. But this tension continued into my adulthood.
I wonder if maybe you can relate to what I’m talking about today over at Faith Reboot- with Brittney? Perhaps you’ve struggled with this same tension of holding on and letting go? Maybe you’ve experience it or are experiencing it as a parent or as an adult child? God spoke to me about this tension. Join me over at Faith Reboot- with Brittney to read more.
