They say you find your true teachers when you are ready for them.
And ready to listen, maybe.
You are my teachers....and I am listening.
This from Brenda yesterday:
"Take it one day at a time and let them teach you. My kids have taught me more than I will EVER teach them."
(And this from a woman whose family farms for a living, makes their own clothes AND knows how to cook WITHOUT a 1,000 Euro Thermomix! Oh - and homeschools too.)
I've been saying it about Ryan too:
"I was trying to give Ryan self-worth by having her fit in. She is teaching me self-worth by showing me I don't have to." (Hero blog, February 3, 2010)
What have you learned from your children? How to pick up the house for company in less than 2 minutes? The importance of choosing your battles? The true meaning of joy?
Enough about me already.
Let's do this one together.
(I am looking for a list of ten, just one or two from each of you. And thanks to Karenne - for reminding me that it's not all about me, but about all of you too!)
