With each new child (a parent's meditation)


With each new child


Everyday tasks are tougher


Quiet moments are rarer


Fuses are shorter


And the responsibilities weigh heavier


But the resolve is greater


Because their little faces couldn't be brighter


Nor their trust purer


So our task is clearer

And in this way a bit easier


Because the stakes couldn't be higher

There she is! That beautiful girl! I'm so excited for new pictures. And, I love that she is lounging on a quilt made by her aunt Traci. :) I wish we could find a time to see her in person.....

Give all the girls a hug!
