I have questioned often what I have taught my kids, if enough. I am learning that there are things innate in them for which I cannot take credit. Her courage and her faith come from within, it is found in her, not because of me, nor in spite of, but because that is who she is. Brave, honest, strong. Her own woman.
After days watching her in the hospital she asked me to go home, sleep, and shower, please. There, that’s one thing she learned from me, her wit or…sarcasm. Finally, I can take credit for something of what makes up this wonderful human being, my kid, my daughter.
