Everywhere you look people are making choices. People are taking action, taking sides, digging into their perspectives. When I see the one-sidedness and separation that are widely accepted as valid opinions I want to disagree, I want to explain myself, I want to change minds. Then I remember that it is, in fact, that very desire which creates separation and entrenches ideologies.
Everywhere you look people are making choices. But they don’t need your judgment. They need your love.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately in terms of my 3 adult children (18-22) – an important lesson for a parent like me to remember.
Being a parent is surely one of the best teachers of this lesson, amongst many other lessons! As I saw my own parents learn this lesson with my brothers and I, the love born of their acceptance created a bond that can never be broken.
