Children

My grandmother sent this to me from her Irish Jesuit prayer site. * * * * *Children are deprived not because we do not give them things, but because we do not sufficiently value what they give us.

You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

Our Daughter’s First Year

We got the creative idea (from where I don’t recall) to take photos of our daughter every month the first year of her life with the same teddy bear to “chart” her growth.
