When we did our parent program in Lenexa, Kansas this past Sunday there was one couple that really inspired us.  There was a woman who came back in after our program.  She said moments before she and her husband got in their car, and he looked at her and said “I yell too much don’t I?”  She nodded her head, looked at him and said “I get angry too much don’t I?”  He nodded his head. It takes so much courage to self-reflect like that. What an awesome thing! We’re each of us learning and growing as we go, and when we honestly look at our limiting beliefs and patterns of behavior, we step into a bigger, better life. We let more love in.

The Hopi Indians have a proverb that says “Do not let anger poison you.”  Is it possible that sometimes our anger poisons our relationship with our children?

Here’s a picture of us with our clan matriarch, Robert’s mom, Naomi.  She is a powerful, loving presence and she has taught us much about relationships, and our relationships with our own children and grandchildren.
