I am grateful for...

in the sense of quiet, calm, connected. The boys playing legos, concentrating on their own creations, Orlando bringing them in to show me as I made French toast, and then Mica imitating him and doing the same. I feel grateful for those moments when we're coexisting in harmony and balance. I am grateful for the last two mornings when I felt a relaxed instead of completely frazzled.

in the sense of non-harmful and compassionate. I am grateful that Rom and I are inspired to parent peacefully, even when it is difficult to overcome our own habits of making demands and commands of one another. I am grateful that my children have strong spirits and show us the way.
