    Reading this passage I thought of raising my children.  To me, Like The Sun Shining represents total surrender of ego...letting go of even the tiniest crumbs of my will so that my children can grow and flourish into all of whom they were meant to be.  I've got the vision -- of myself being this big, bright, ever-burning sunshine for them and all who enter my life.  I pray that I can live this way when I get up from this chair and turn to plan the day with them.  I pray that I can maintain this vision as we gear up for another school year.  Sometimes it seems the line is blurred between what is my will vs. what is their path, but I do know how to tell the difference and this is good news.  I can tell the difference because of how I feel inside.  Prayer, journeling and my husband's feedback also help me get clarity.
