Finding Truth in the Weekend Paper - Mary Martin

Saturday, September 15, 2012

This morning I was meandering through the newspaper in a semi-conscious weekend-morning state, waiting for my coffee to be ready. I was close to finishing the second section, wondering why I persist in this ritual every day when so many of the articles highlight everything that’s wrong, inadequate, hurtful, sad and scary in the world today.

If we can have a conversation that’s human and down-to-earth, kids seem to appreciate someone connecting the dots. As a parent, I’ve found myself pointing to the invisible forces that are happening inside of us because there’s times when I know it will help my kids make sense of life when they’re having a hard time. I’ll give an example that happened a few days ago with my daughter.
