“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Gandhi

I keep this blog a fairly happy place, never talking about politics and shying away from current events. We are so inundated with the harsh realities of the world that I like to give people a happy place to run to. Today, in light of Orlando and Minnesota and Louisiana and Dallas, my heart hurts too much. As a mother, I constantly worry about sending my children out into such a violent and cruel place. Social media can be used for such good, but I’ve been drowning in it lately. It’s important to hear these messages, digest these messages, but not on repeat. Not so we are so stuck and paralyzed in our own fear. 

Today I took a step back and asked myself how I could be the change, if even in a tiny way. I saw two little pairs of eyes looking to me, mirroring my actions and learning from my non-actions. As mothers (grandmothers, aunts, foster mothers, mentors, etc), we have the potential to make such a difference in the world. Teach empathy, teach goodness, teach tolerance, teach love. I asked my almost 6 year old how we could brighten someone else’s day and he thought flowers would make others smile. I agree, so we bought a bunch of flower seed packets and he helped me put them inside ‪Let Love Grow printable packets to give to others as a small random act of kindness. Do something good today, everyday, the world needs it.
