It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the NEW. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. - Alan Cohen
It is the first day of the new year - can't believe how quickly time has been flying by - our oldest son will be 16 very shortly. While he is a very responsible young man, the thought of him spreading his wings and getting independence on the road makes this mama pretty nervous.
Time to embrace NEW - I'm normally not so great with new - I like what is known and comfortable - I miss my boys being little and thinking that we had all life's answers. . .
Hence the vaguely worried look in this gal's face. . . a bit of wistful yearning for the past mixed in with cautious optimism for the future. . . the look of a woman that isn't so good with NEW.
