Sitting here in heavy traffic, wishing I could push push push and get us home, I remind myself to pause. This family, these children, me…all could use a pause, a slow down of the soul. A group hug.
I realize that it’s a constant state of mind, to choose peace. To choose love. Even for our enemies. And especially when we don’t think it makes sense.
I looked back at them in the car just now, and one child waves two fingers at me, as if he’s reading my mind with that universal symbol, and says “peace, mommy, you need peace”.
Don’t we all.
