i wonder…

January 27, 2009


Today I wonder if she can be tamed…today I hold an inner wish  for harmony and compliance. No conflict, no struggle, no quest for balance,  just peace and quiet. and I know, (sigh) I know,  if this wish came true, everything would be wrong in the world. Her beauty is in her power, her grace in her strength, her magic is in her will.

and she sleeps, and I rest, waiting for it to awake in me…

And you will have earned all the gray hairs to come – (this is meant to be a positive comment:) )

    Oh, so beautifully put. On my worst days with my son it is difficult to find those thoughts and feelings to bring his sweet heart back to mine. Thank you for giving me the words for those thoughts and feelings.

    I survived my the year that my daughter was 3 by repeating this mantra: she’s gonna be an amazing adult. she’s gonna be an amazing adult. It helped me surf the waves of her intensity- some days all I could do was hold on and pray I didn’t fall off.
    She’s 7 now, still intense and just a lot, but oh my stars have I learned some things. She’s taught me so much and I’ve taken leaps and done things I never would have done without her.
