So It Is


“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” Buddha 

“Look at this flower,” she paused suddenly. “What do you see?”

He tilted his head in thought. “Something pretty,” he said, “and happy…and colorful.”

“That’s a very good answer,” she nodded, “but go deeper, darling, go deeper.”

“Well,” he furrowed his brow. “How about open…and alive…and dancing with the wind?”

She smiled. “I like that. But still, go deeper.”


The child looked up at his mother, glanced up at the clouds swirling in the blue sky overhead, then lowered his eyes to the field of flowers again. “I believe these flowers might be marvelous!” He finally said. “And magical! Mama, I believe I see a miracle!”

Her face lit up and she reached down to take the miracle of his tiny hand. “So it is with you,” the mother whispered to her son. “So it is with you.”


“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
