i have some thoughts about different mini topics along the way. for instance, i would love an opportunity to hear how people are showing compassion to their children. ideas really. i read a wonderfully inspiring blog entry the other day..
its a big, bold title but hey ~ its a big bold topic. there was a section that emphasized the point ~ if i want to leave a legacy of hospitality then i had better be the home with doors open.
i went on to think about the legacy i am leaving now... when in doubt, ask..
i told my daughter i had a little project i needed her help with. she didn't bat an eye because i have been in the mist of my master's program for the last 3 years & life for her - is Mom & her Many Projects.
i have this scrapbook that i haven't used.. go figure, don't we all have those? at least those of us that hoard tools.. (kitchen, craft, garage, or otherwise)
i told her i needed small pictures of different ways of describing me. i didn't let her know it was a legacy thing, because - really what is a legacy other than a topic leading to when i'm gone. we don't have to go there .. right now i just want to check in with her, when all i do boils down ~ how does she describe me now.
anyway.. wish i had an answer for you - that was friday morning during oatmeal time before school, will get back with you on the results..
if you get a chance ~ read the blog attached ~ its marvelous. in fact, in the three days since i read it i have actually perused parenting differently & i am happier with myself. less critical. i am intentionally thinking throughout the day how i can make this experience more positive.
