It’s a Learning Experience

20120130-063845.jpg

Brothers, 2 years apart, almost to the day. As you can imagine, there are rough and tumble moments, shouting matches, and the like. It’s normal. But, what is a normal reaction to it? Shouting amidst the chaos? It falls on deaf ears. It frustrates and angers everyone even more. We’re taking a new approach, and I feel a new calm over our family that hasn’t ever been there. I won’t lie and say it’s always easy, or I never raise my voice. It happens, more often than I’d like. But when I see Noel taking on leadership roles in a positive way, Lennon being a receptive listener, and them interacting with kindness, I am thankful. I’m reassured. I know we’re headed in the right direction.

About Laura

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." -e.e. cummings
