Quiet Time

In the afternoon after lunch when we've played to our hearts content we pause from our day.  We take a deep breath in and relax.  Each child gets a yoga mat with a pillow.  Some decide to fall asleep others choose to read books.  For an hour we sit quietly and practice being present to ourselves.
Today I went from child to child and rubbed cream into their small, little hands.  As their hands
were massaged I was able to be present to each child, to look into their eyes and
acknowledge their beauty.  In this small act I felt very fulfilled and connected to these small little
beings that aren't small at all.
