Clever or Wise?

Clever or Wise?.

I spent two days on a break of sorts. I intended to post something late Saturday afternoon, but spent the day and good portion of the evening being a minion to our 5 month old grandson.

He is getting to the age where he can play games i.e. peek-a-boo and he recalls that he has played the game with you. When I walked into the house on Sunday, he smiled and wanted to play.

Small things and children help us grow and become wise. We want to change our self because it is the best way to change the world we come in contact with. We blend the passion for life with compassion, because without the integration we are incomplete.

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  2. Beginners mind,,,,,,,

    This is learning for us, mature set, watch, see another human being entirely wrapped up in this moment, empty of doubt or worry.

    We strive to find this space as adults.

  3. Don’t worry at all about what you intended to do. Sounds like what you ended up doing was perfect.

    How wonderful to care for your grandchild! I’m not sure who benefits more, you or the child. God bless you both. ❤
