The one thing I am most grateful for is my two children. I know that sounds so cliché, but it is the truth. It is through them that my heart walks outside of my body, vulnerable and open, ready to receive and feel on the deepest levels. They are my greatest teachers. They have taught me unconditional love -- for them and for myself.
I could only love them unconditionally once I understood how to love and value myself first. What is so interesting is that each child, through their unique personalities, strengths and weaknesses, has designed a personalized curriculum for me.
