Day 97 - Hands

Thought of the day:  The homeopathic doctor we took Lila to see today was impressed by how well she was holding up despite her high fever.  She was clearly very weak and tired but she remained calm most of the time and played whenever she gained some strength.  It's more difficult for myself to stay calm with two sickly kids.  Toddlers are a perfect example of living in the moment. They feel, think and act in the moment and for the moment.  Grownups carry way too much baggage - baggage of memories, baggage of duties, baggage of sometimes overreaching imaginations - to do the same.  But to live freely in the moment is what would free us from unwarranted fear and anxiety like what I felt today.
