I’ve never felt more human than I did today. I recognized something about me that made me cringe, only to then become joy as I realized that I could now change it... now that I’m aware on a deeper level. And I got so excited, and my 7 yo asked me why I was excited, so I told him. He then asks me, “Mom, did you take a look at yourself?”“Yes,” I said. And he deadass says, “If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make a change.” #shamoah#maninthemirror We are human first.
I spent this morning wandering around Old Town in a surreal, warm, spring-like rain with a dear, old friend. We talked of the force of time and aging parents, the force of parenthood as we work to rebalance and redistribute, the force of the Grand River bulging its banks and flooding its trails. My hair was wet from the rain all day, my cheeks flushed and cool. @rrfiore #igerslansing#grandriver#oldtown#flood#river#parenting#nourishingkindredspirit
