This is such a beautiful post. Sunflower dog and cat you are my sunshine my only sunshine shirt have to say how often, really daily in fact, that your words come to my mind and heart. Many years ago, after reading some of your works, I decided to “let go” if you will. Let my daughters, mostly my youngest do things her way- I remember her wanting to do her own hair & that meant 5-10 crazy barrettes, certainly not the way I would do them! It may seem a simple thing but it was a beautiful start to a journey for me & also for her as she could go on to discover her true self. And I THANK YOU for the words of encouragement and hope that I found from you all those years ago & still find daily. They are , in part, the reason that my girl is who she is.
This makes me cry in the best possible Sunflower dog and cat you are my sunshine my only sunshine shirt! Thank you for sharing your journey and how I’ve been a part of it. Just imagining your beautiful girl singing that particular song and the story behind it makes me feel so happy. This book (Only Love Today) touched my own life and resonated with me so deeply that I bought copies for all my girlfriends at different stages in their parenting/relationship/life journey.
