Do you want to give your children the very best? I do. Often, when the work is intense and I am tired–wanting to stop–I think of them. The desire to provide for my children, to keep them safe and well-fed, keeps me going through tough times.
I first discovered Thich Nhat Hanh through his book, The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation. And the older I get, the more I realize the importance of being present to the moment.
