…sacred …

Endless words to write and say as we celebrated Leia’s second birthday today– however, my arms are full with this sweet, tiny button-nosed baby with the jet black hair and I cannot get to the photos from today just yet

So …I will leave you with this … a quote that means so much:

[some more images of Sweet Lavender …]

“Oh, that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor
of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained!
Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity;
could she look into it’s soul to see its possibilities;
could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,
–she would see that in all God’s world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers,
and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her.”
