Hallelujah!!

Maybe we *ARE* doing something right!!!! ;) Not that I need proof, I know my children are amazing human beings and will do amazing human being things now and as they grow older! I just love this powerful Scott Noelle message, I hope you see the truth in it, too!

:: The Wild Child ::

Domesticated animals confined to farms, zoos, and
similar unnatural habitats lack a certain "spark"
found in their wild counterparts. They've been bred or
trained to live apart from their nature. They've
adjusted to their lack of freedom.

Put a wild animal in a cage for the first time and
behold the fury! What else would you expect from a
creature who still knows it's supposed to be free?

Children are born free and wild, and they don't
readily submit to "domestication." And thank Goodness
for that! Because those who retain that spark are the
ones who will uplift humanity in generations to come.

Today, look for evidence of the spark of wildness in
your child... and *celebrate* it! Trust that s/he will
civilize in due time. And meantime, let that spark
ignite the flames of an authentic, passionate life.

I'm laughing!!! When I read that in my e-mail yesterday I said the same thing, "Well, ha, my children are going to ROCK the world!!"

I have been loving all the Daily Groove emails since I subscribed a few months ago. The ones this week have all be super awesome too!

It is funny how I try to relate the messages into adult terms as well--like certain adult behaviors like aggression, he mentioned in children as needing to re-connect.

Hope all is well guys. Been missing you all at the sports days. Today we started kickball, then the kids and I went for a swim at the place we discussed. Such a wonderful relaxing place I just cannot describe it in words....
