She is Raising Me

My girl came home this weekend. Since she left for college, our relationship has evolved. We are building an adult friendship, and she is raising me.

She is actively reinforcing in me all she has believed about me throughout her life. She challenges me to be stronger. She insists on my advocating for myself as I always have for her.

I am Learning.

She has me wearing, and believing in pink. I am grateful for her fierce strength.

Don’t ever give up on your mom, querida mia. I’ll never be my best without your wind at my back.
