A light heart, kindness and an ability to play well with others is what I really want to pass on to Bee. I have lots of this much of the time, but not always. Everyday I show her how to be in this world by what I do. I also believe that I am one tiny part of creating what kind of world we live in.
Last week at work was really challenging. I am caught in the middle of complex politics and long term issues and feel like I am being sent out to swim with sharks. It is hard not to get caught up in the storm especially when I am swimming in the ocean. I feel such a swirling of emotions. Not long ago, a colleague took her own life. I leave work and wonder how can we make the world an easier more gentle place for all of us to live in?

Today was a day and a half, possibly two days packed into one at work and not all of it was fun.
Here is what is uplifting me tonight.
I feel quite certain that one day I will be able to do this.

Bee drank a lot of thawed milk when I first started work and then moved on. I still had a bunch a milk in the deep freeze.
Today I packed it up and it is getting shipped tonight via Pur.olater to another family in Nelson, BC. There is a girl there that relies on breastmilk as it is one of the few things that she can digest. Their blog is here http://healinganaya.blogspot.com/ I hope the milk arrives safely. I packed it with lots of icepacks, wrapped it in foil, packed newspaper around it and put it in a cooler. Puro.lator is shipping milk for them for free from Canadian moms. Our deep freezer no longer has milk, it also no longer needs milk. My hands were shaking as I packed up the milk, but I am happy that I was able to send it to this family.

She signed potty, I stuck her on and she peed. Then, because learning is exhausting, she feel asleep nursing. What a night. What a girl.
