Thanks so much for all the fun. Before departing, I leave this layered perspective on parenthood and then return you to your regular T&S, already in progress.

letting go sm


I am afraid to let you go. Yet reason tells me that if I am to be like God, I must.

I must let you fall, let you grow.

But when you are all done falling and growing,

please, please come back into my arms.

    Thank you, Maren. It’s been a pleasure co-guest-blogging with you. You are insightful without being pretentious.

    Is your stint over already? I am sincerely sorry for threadjacking your vanity post with my comment on Utah. I didn’t realize I wouldn’t have enough opportunities to redeem myself. :(

    Your photography is beautiful. I love how each picture tells a story.

    Dane: That’s one of the nicest things I’ve heard all day. Thank you. I look forward to the rest of your discussions about green hills. Great subject.

    Stephanie: Thanks and no worries- I enjoyed all your comments very much and suspect we have a lot in common. I might show up with a picture in A Mormon Image from time to time. Anyway, I’m always at my personal blog. (See Frank’s intro for the link.)
