    I love this post!
    Not only is the balance of every person’s pulling delicate, but so is how hard you’re holding onto it.  I think as a mother I sometimes not only hold the string but get it all wrapped around my waist and tangled.  To take the analogy too far, you also have to make sure not to trip…

    Notice how older strings are so well-worn?  It’s from all the years of pulling, straining then relieving.  They almost appear “fuzzy” and they’re soft.  Much softer and more comfortable than they were long ago.

    This was a good one.  Made me think.  Thanks for that.

    I love your analogies, ya’ll! Seriously. It’s true, the string thing. Frayed and tight, I do them both.

    It pulls each of us differently and we begin to tip in opposite directions wondering why the other can’t see what’s going on.

    Yup, this happens to us and for some reason it smacks us in the face each time.  Go figure….

    I love this post!!!
