Our task is to meet the rise and fall of each day with grace (from my calendar).
I was talking to my friend B the other day. He reminded me that, while this seems to be all about expatriation, it's actually a spiritual journey - and I have teachers all around me.
So even when the kids are driving me crazy (maybe, especially then), my task is to be present. They are better at this BEing stuff than I am, anyway.
And even when there is a lot to do (when isn't there?), my task is still to practice being present. And to meet the rise and fall of each day with grace.
I love that.
