april & julia
this girl causes for much reflection
She is kind of difficult. She is very strong-willed. She is a fighter and persistent. Isn't this what we all want in our children?
Many might say- "oh she is only 11 months old...give her time- she will change" but you know it is quite evident that this girl isn't going to change much...she came out of the womb fighting for something-
I can already imagine what she will teach me in this life...
I wasn't the most agreeable little girl either and I still don't think I am at times- I still have vivid memories of some of the arguments I would get into with my dad. I just had to prove my strength somehow. Why? What was I holding on to?
My stubbornness has been a gift--only because I have sought to change it and so it has been an invitation to reflect inside and see where it all originates- what fuels it...and maybe it will help me embrace Julia in all her crazy realms and to just breathe deeply through it all. The more we know ourselves the more we will know how to deal with our relationships.
