This small town I was born in and love and adore and choose to move back to and raise my kids in, is not where my kids feel destined to reside. It's a shocking idea to me. I can't remember a time I didn't desire this town and all the family history nestled in the heart of it.
But, my goal for my kids has always been for them to find their dreams and go for it. I knew, way back with that first half formed prayer that this newborn baby would love life to the fullest, that what made my life grand might not be what makes his and her life grand.
They have bigger dreams and the bright lights of the city gives fuel to their drive.
I know I'm going to cry when they take off, but by golly, I'm going to bursting with pride too. Look what this Sunset Town Mom has helped shape!
