“It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” — Claude Monet
Watching my children — really paying attention to them at play — is one of my greatest joys.
The girls found an old tattered and torn pillow case in the linen closet, cut it up, and transformed it into a dozen doll pillows.
I have been the recipient of a series of unkind words this week, and this little pile of pillows seems to be the reminder I need today. Be gentle. Remember the power we wield with our words.
Now if only I can learn from my girls’ creativity and turn a torn relationship into a beautiful connection again . . .
