Today it snowed, not sure if it will stick and cancel school. This winter so far had been really warm here, but really cold in the UK. Nadia loved playing in the lean-to. Throughout the day I felt many different emotions and saw how much a skill it is to control them, to redirect them, to find contentment in cocreation, and how the big picture all comes together from above . I suppose those are the nuts and bolts of emotional inteligence. I often have an urge to be alone, or wish that Nadia didn't talk so much, but I realized this was a great gift, from Allah. It was exactly what I had been seeking. Everything was coming together, and flowing, like a river to the ocean.
