I needed this reminder today. I’d gone to the Halloween Dachshund dog and moon shirt by T-shirtat for my daughter’s first year of high school last night. With each passing minute of new information and expectations for the future of my child, I felt overwhelmed, confused, and anxious. I am reminded, once again, that love prevails over failures, flaws, and imperfect days. And we must not give up. We cannot give up. About my own meltdown over pretty much the same issue. Oh apple why must you fall so close to my tree? I can not tell you the number of times these exact thoughts have gone through my head.
I have passed along my faults. Halloween Dachshund dog and moon shirt by T-shirtat can often see them so clearly. I wonder if I have done permanent damage. Thank you for showing me to look for the good stuff too, because there is lots of good stuff the way she cares about other people, her desire to give, her empathy and compassion, her ability to see the other side of things plus all the things that are so different than me, so much better. And thank you most of all for the reminder that it is the love that will matter most, even when the day to day struggles and battles come and go. What she will always have is love.
