Jeff says that all the time, especially when Raven hugs me and he sees the expression on her face as she does.
As the beneficiary of her hug, I don’t see it. But I feel her tremendous love and every time, I am grateful to the universe for giving me this beautiful spirit to guide on her journey. It’s a huge responsibility and one I take seriously. More than education, more than the little luxuries I can afford for her, my ultimate hope is for her to stay true to her spiritual path so that by the end of my lifetime, I can proudly say I did a good job raising her. My method may not be perfect (far from it, to be honest) and she might make bad decisions along the way but hopefully the fire I kindled in her heart would burn bright and strong, lighting her path in times of darkness towards her highest good.
But she will. And that’s the reason why I try to get motherhood right even if a lot of times I’m so uncertain myself.
