Hello my friends,
I would like to share it with you. The parenthetical remarks are mine; I hope you will take a moment and fill in the blanks, for yourself.
Mindfulness for children:
Tell me one thing that was really happy or fun today? (seeing my son)
Tell me one thing that was really hard today. (driving a long way)
Tell me one thing that was neutral. (doing laundry)
That’s pretty much it, life. Every day. The happy, the difficult, and the neutral.
I wrote back, “Your mindfulness for children is wonderful!”
Please God, let me have the mindfulness and grace of a child today. To know what I like and what I don’t like. To enjoy the blue sky and the ice cream dripping and the flowers blooming.
