Growing Up

My daughter is home from college and it is forcing me to grow. Up. I told her today that I knew I needed to learn to stop making all her issues about me. She would tell me something about school and how it was affecting her and I would take it as a reflection of my parenting skills. It never ceases to amaze me how the stuff I look down my nose at others for eventually surfaces for me to see with that split second clarity in my own life. This is about the 3rd example since yesterday where I have seen stuff in myself that I have been judging other people for. I think Humble Pie is on the Christmas dinner menu!
