Enjoying Today

Read a moving, thought-provoking article today on being a parent and wanted to share it with you...

I hope it encourages and challenges you as it did me. 

Reminds me of a quote from a book I read last year - 

"Children need to be enjoyed and valued, not managed.

We often focus on the problems of life rather than on the possibilities for enjoyment and learning available to us.

When we are too busy doing things for our children,
we forget how important it is to simply be with them."

- from "Parenting from the Inside Out" (Siegel, Hartzell)

Wow, how convicting.

And because no post is complete without a picture, here is a snapshot of my youngest watching her bubbles fly away...pure joy!

Enjoying Today
