I’ve been a little quite lately, I know. It feels like I’ve been set a drift to watch my life played out on the shore like a passive bystander floating on by. Partly it’s stress; the feeling that I’m treading lightly between waves of panic and confidence. I keep saying that I just wished one thing would work out lately, but the more I ask, the more I laugh. Do we ever really enjoy ground beneath our feet? And should we?
Amidst all the change happening in my life, one constant fuels my soul – my two children. It’s as if they are old war veterans who have seen it all and know the value of living every moment to the fullest. They are present. They are abundantly joyful. Most important, especially as of late, they are beautifully adaptable. How wonderful to take what you get and make the most of it. Just as I suspected, they teach me my most valuable life lessons every single day. Whether I listen and learn and give in to love… well, that’s up to me.
