Daily Inspiration 10-18-12

"There are two lasting bequests
we can give our children:
One is roots.
The other is wings."

-- Hodding Carter, Jr.
What a great quote this is. It seems to be almost opposing ideas, but the more I think on it, the more sense it makes.
It's always about learning to let go, isn't it? We have to learn to let go of a lot of things over time, and as we learn to let go, we are able to grow, or fly as the quote says.
Yet throughout it all, it is so rewarding and comforting to have been built from a solid foundation, or barring that, have created one of our own.
Roots and Wings. Hmmm. . . I Like It.
