Real Life…

I have not been on vacation. This interruption to “normal” is precisely and preciously my life! My grandchildren are are my house for 2 weeks while their parents are in the UK waiting for the opportunity for my son to face a challenge and fulfill a dream (swimming the English Channel (see Archive, July 15).

While much of what I might normally do has been put aside for this time, I would not describe it as unpleasant at all – it is the best kind of life lesson. What is abundantly clear each minute of every day, is that children are zen masters! Patience, persistence and grace abound. And now I need to go to bed so that I can keep up with them tomorrow again!
