Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff. ~Catherine M. Wallace~
I realize that what I'm looking for isn't perfection but a way to make space to be the parent I want to be.
At the moment of your birth, your angels leaned over and whispered into your ear,"Breathe. Just breathe." And when you obeyed and drew your first breath, they smiled and gave you your first affirmation: "See? You are strong and capable of surviving even the most painful and frightening of life's passages. Remeber this. Remember this." @ Judith Land
