Dharma Mums

I read Anne Cushman’s article on parenting and practice (Fall 2001) twice, so hungry have I been for words on this subject. Some months ago, while driving my son to preschool, I was preoccupied with thoughts of my parents, both of whom had recently been diagnosed with cancer. From the back seat, my son suddenly said, “It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it, Mama?” He presents me with so many challenges, as well as opportunities to choose my actions with care. I actually began to sit after I had children, not before, and I no longer question whether mothering and practice are compatible.
