The Daily Beauty We Plant

太久沒正式提筆固定寫點什麼的,問友人會想看什麼呢?她說:「美」,之於日常。

日常,Day-to-day,如呼吸也如潮浪,時光在一起一伏的片刻間流過。

至於有了孩子的日常,對我來說,又會是什麼樣呢?

也許,是會像這天吧。我和孩子去看海,他頭一趟把雙腳踏在沙上,腳趾頭起勁地在撥弄著。我看那點點細沙在他腳背滑過,便想,日常之於我,就是那流動的沙,細碎地落在心裡,化為微妙體會的種子。而後,終有一天,我會在長出的樹影間,尋回我倆的,美好如一。


“As parents, we do not know what will be the result of our choices and decisions about lifestyle, schooling and spiritual direction for our children. All we can do is continue to educate ourselves in our decision-making, and do the hard work these decisions demand. It is not for many years that we will be able to see what indelible impressions we have made. We just do our best day by day, year after year, in faith that our abiding love for our children will act as our guide, that love will show us the needs of each unique child of ours.”

– Sharifa Oppenheimer, Heaven on Earth
