Do you know Katrina Kenison? I do not have her book The Gift of an Ordinary Day, but I do love her blog. It seems that each time she has a new entry, I bookmark it, email it to a bunch of people (who knows if anyone even reads it!), and generally can't get it out of my head for a few days. Which sort of tells me I would like her book and should order it already?
This from her latest blog post:
And what is our real job as parents, if not first to nurture the beings entrusted to our care, to have faith in their inchoate processes of growing and becoming, and then to show up, again and again, for as long as we are able, to bear grateful witness to their unfolding destinies?
So good, am I right?
