A few days ago my 6 year son came home from school with a friend of his. They went outside to play soccer but ended up sitting in the sun on the deck having a snack chatting. Before I knew it my son had his knitting with him and was busy knitting away while the two of them talked about soccer and knitting. The conversation included words like purl!
As I held back giggles at this sweet interaction I was reminded of how wonderful it is to be totally true to yourself, without influence, without judgement or labels.
We grow and we are given ideas on who we are. We grow more and life gives us layers. These layers serve us well and many we will love. I love being a Mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, yoga teacher.... These are all parts of me, they are not fully me.
I am grateful for children to remind us that we need to show up as we truly are and be accepting of others when they do the same.
