.What life is all about.

 While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

.Angela Schwindt.

She teaches me that life can be about reckless abandonment, and moving fast every day because there is so much to see, and to be friendly to everyone even if it is not returned, and that it's okay to hold back for a minute and take it all in, and that sometimes there's too much to do to be worried about hair and matching socks, but that you must always be careful of what you say and how you say it, and that keeping up with emails, and phone calls, and social networking is so gosh darn not important in the big scheme of things, and that sitting and watching others is boring compared to trying yourself, and that a meal is best tasted when shared, and who wants to wake up in a rush, but laying back and letting the sunlight break through into your windows is such a better way to start the day, and to be selective in your hugs and kisses, but when you choose to partake, give it your all, and also, to try new things gingerly, but not nervously, because eventually we'll figure out the way.

We'll figure it out some way, and if it hurts us in the process, well then we'll run to our comfort and seek solace until we're ready to try again.
