june four: on being present

mother's day 23
"The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love,
they will bloom like flowers."
~Thich Nhat Hanh


  1. thank you for this reminder. it's so timely here - i was just "scolded" by my 4 year old for spending too much time on my phone always reading and typing. i am so grateful he was able to communicate what's been bothering him. i've put my phone in time-out for a few days and i am going to give my boys everything i have...i have a feeling we're all going to benefit and bloom.
    enjoying all that's blooming around you these days.

  2. I'm sighing as I read this quote and thanking you for the reminder. three nights ago I took "The Miracle of Mindfulness" by Thich Nhat Hanh off my bookshelf after a hard day - Reading through his words certainly grounds me. Your photo fits perfectly with my interpretation of the meaning behind the quote. Simple and refreshing!
