I will choose to offer safety and keep a gentle voice when I discover my four year old descending down from the tippy top tiny branch of a not-so-sturdy tree...with nothing on but a t-shirt and shoes. I will remember that indeed I was the one who encouraged him to go outside and do some birdwatching.
Today, I will choose to do my best to see the world through their eyes,
to hear it through their ears,
to feel it with their touch,
to taste and know and explore it with my whole self.
