What impresses me is their ability to think about the world in a big way. The two of them have come to very individual conclusions - which I take as a good sign. I hope I can continue to live in a way that moves things forward and honors them. I really have tried to invest much in them.
I've made my share of mistakes with them, other family and friends. And I'm becoming better at accepting that.
Now I get to focus on the rest of my life getting better at supporting them and making the changes I wanted to make for them. I've learned a lot in the last 20 years. I'm trying to consolidate that learning and make it useful. The Nuestra Familia blog has some of my learnings written out. Mostly in a semi-academic tone. I will keep working at internalizing it and writing closer to talking tone.
I'm feeling fairly good today. Need to keep walking.
