You know the feeling. Your breath catches. Something takes it away. Something surprises you. The unexpected. The unknown. It’s not often our children who do that to us, but yet. Could it be?
Sometimes our kids make us proud in unexpected places. We naturally swoon at their accomplishments and abilities. But once in a while they do things that are so grown-up. So mature. Sometimes they do things that you can’t imagining your own self EVER doing. And sometimes those “things” appear so suddenly they take your breath away. I had two of those moments back to back in the same evening this weekend.
