Inspiring Words...

"Last night I lay in bed with my children as they were falling asleep, and I stopped making lists in my head.  I stopped fretting about money and work.  I stopped wishing the kids would fall asleep already so I could be somewhere else, doing something else.  Instead I noticed the dark crescents of their eyelashes.  I watched as the moonlight turned their cheeks to white apricots.  And I felt my heart swell with joy and gratitude.  It was utterly ordinary.  And utterly extraordinary.  It was an everyday blessing."

- Catherine Newman from her article titled "Dalai Mama"
