Finding a moment.

For the first time in a long time I came home after coaching a couple of early morning classes.  Kris had a dental appointment that he had to get to; therefore,  I have parental duties.  The kids are still asleep from a long hard Sunday, my home is quiet.  This is rare.  I am sitting with a cup of coffee, at my house, no noise, and I almost do not know what to do.  In fact, I don't know whether to scramble and get as much done as I possible before the house turns to normalcy or sit in the quiet and reflect.

I choose to blog, which can be a reflection, if you are in my current situation, silence.  I would prefer to blog more for you.  I will see if my husband can go to the dentist ever Monday, run the kids ragged on Sunday, and see what I can get!  Ha!

Able to spend a moment in Warrior of the Light by Paulo Coelho I leave you with this:
The Warrior of the Light come times behaves like water, flowing around the obstacles he encounters.

Occasionally, resistance might mean destruction, and so he adapts to the circumstances.  He accepts, without complaint, that the stones in his path hinder his way through the mountains.

Therein lies the strength of water: It cannot be touched by a hammer or ripped to shreds by a knife.  The strongest sword in the world cannot scar its surface.

The river adapts itself to whatever route proves possible, but the river never forgets its one objective: the sea.  So fragile at its source, it gradually gathers the strength of the other rivers it encounters .

And, after a certain point, its power is absolute.

Be Powerful today.

Bruce Lee said it best....
Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

as for going to the dentist every monday... uhhh NO thanks.

love you
