This wonder-filled soul comes in utter trust that we will give it what is good and true.
With unconditional love and devotion it seeks to emulate us, absorbing all we bring, spoken and unspoken, deep into it's being. We are like the sun...shining at the center of its universe.
Before the child we are called to stand in our truest humanity.
We are asked to be all that we can be. What a responsibility! What a priviledge! We can only be moved to humility and gratitude.
Please know that the time of early childhood is brief. Let the child teach you anew the joy of discovering the wonder and beauty of the world.
For you as a parent this is one of the most challenging times of life, and one of the most wonderful.
Take time to enjoy the precious moments, to love your little one.
The future of humanity depends on such deeds.
I know we all "know" this, but I guess I just like the way Nancy lays it out. The last line rings true for me. Let's try to nurture our children and raise our children to be the people we want to see in this world. Anyways, I hope you liked the words...that is if you could even read them with all these ridiculously cute baby pictures all over the place!!
