I wrote a long reflection yesterday and thought I posted it and now I am running behind. Aack.
So a shorter response. Learning to give people time to retell their stories means so much to me because my husband is struggling with short term memory. So, giving time to hear stories, to give the gift of listening, of time, of predictable routine.... is all a gift. Showing up.
I found so much tenderness in this story.
And additionally teaching our children to listen between the lines to the emotional story is so important. We need more words than mad, sad and glad. Learning the language of emotions. Brene Brown's a new book makes a new relevant contribution to understanding human emotion. Boy do we ever need this literacy!
