When you look at your children (if you happen to have some), you see beginnings and wonder about their future. They are your sun.
When your children look at you (again, if you happen to have some), they see endings and wonder about your past. You are their moon.
Your children will make you crazy over and over again…
That’s their job.
It’s paybacks for all the crazy you put your own parents through.
You will make your children crazy over and over again…
That’s your job.
It’s your earned privilege for reaching old age without having killed them when they made you nuts.
Hopefully, whether we see beginnings or endings, we will all do it with love in our hearts…and not hurt each other along the way. Know that we all need the sun for its warmth, and the moon to light our way in the darkness.
