When She Steadies You

Today I’m roller skating with my oldest daughter, and I realize that for the first time in all these years, she’s steadying me.

It’s one of those moments when I think about parenting differently. I think about the relationship between mothers and their almost teenage daughters.

I flail my arms, grab on to her hand, and she steadies me.

Motherhood does indeed have its moments of pure wonder.
