Today I feel refreshed by the power of Nick's stillness. Yesterday I had the pleasure of his company all day and into the evening.  We read the papers, reminisced about London, joked about the characters in our family and most of all, set all agendas for purposeful action aside.  

What have I learned from Nicholas?  That I feel off-balance and unhappy when he is not "under my wing".  That I need to trust in him to direct his own care and to tell me if things go wrong.  That we need to trust in the universe that we will be alright in a new configuration. 

And Nick's lesson plans involve stillness, hope and trust.  He leads, not me.  With this lesson fresh in my mind, I feel much better today.

BLOOM - Parenting Kids With Disabilities said...

Hi Donna -- I've been trying to contact you by e-mail without luck. I know one of your blogs said your internet was down?

We couriered copies of the summer BLOOM to you at your Ottawa address just before you came home but they were returned. I'd like to send them again, but wanted to know what was best. Please let me know. I'm at:

Thanks! Louise
