In this way, our kids are magical mindfulness magnets. They pull us right into the now.
These moments come in a plethora of forms -- when they need us, when they are hurting, when they are scared, when they cry, and when their joy is exuberant and flowing out like a stream of flowers.
Is there a certain time of day when you feel most connected with your child? Do you have a memory of a time when your child pulled you into the present moment? I'd love to hear about those magical moments of mindfulness.
