I know being happy, contented, and present myself will be the best thing for my children, but how do I get there? I have to resist the urge to do. I have to stop cleaning, scrolling, planning, thinking-- and tune back into my center, into being.
The only thing my youngest child needed from me was me. She needed me to ask her if she wanted more water or crackers, a pair of cozy socks or her favorite blue Elephant Lovey. She needed my sympathetic smiles and nods, my kisses on her warm forehead, my lap to sit on.
