Dear Santa

My son just e-mailed Santa.

Yes, it's only November.

Yes, my son is 18.

Yes, my son did request a Talking Ben stuffed toy.

Yes, the toy is listed as being for children age 3.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

I barely batted an eye this year. There is truth to the belief that practice makes "perfect."

None of us are perfect, but as we practice parenting the children we actually have, as opposed to the children we thought we wanted, wished we had, or are jealous we don't have, we at times reach the "gap" they talk about in meditation. We can get to that place without thought. That place of is-ness. That place of being. That place of alignment.

Eckhart Tolle says, "When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it, all else is madness."

One can hardly leave one's child. One can hardly change one's child. One can only accept one's child.
