Recently my family experienced a 24 hour power outage -obviously leaving us in the dark for a day. I thought my little girls (8yrs and 3yrs) might be scared of the prolonged dark and no night light situation. But to my delight, they embraced the challenge! They got out their play tent and all of their toys that light up with battery power. I asked the girls if they were ok. My 8 year old told me, "Yes mama. And dont forget..we all have a little light inside of us." -something I tell the girls often and wonder if they hear me:) We DO all have a light inside us. Some days it's a little brighter than others. But it's always there as our guide.
I am a mama of 2 wonderful little girls who inspire my work as a children's yoga instructor every day.
