Wolfling Thought

I keep being amazed that someone I've known all her life, and who has been so deeply influenced by me and those closest to me, still manages to be so much her own unique person, someone who can still surprise me.

There's a lovely mystery in her becoming.

The older she gets, the more I become aware that my job is knowing when and how to try to "raise" her (teaching, providing good examples, setting appropriate boundaries, applying discipline when necessary) and knowing when I need to just get out of the way and give her space for her own unfolding.
