They don't hold grudges. They can be told off and chastised for some misdemeanor but 2 minutes later they will be back at my side, smiling, asking about what I'm doing and if I can help find a lego brick. No sulking, no recriminations, no looking back, no 'baggage' - just moving forwards with lightness and clarity and grace. They just fling their arms wide open and walk forward.
They leave me wondering sometimes who is learning the most from this whole child / parent relationship!
