I've always loved kids. I taught preschool for a few years and loved watching them learn.
Karma and I have no children, but we are blessed with a niece and 2 god daughters that are our world.
My niece has made a huge impact in my life. Part of my recent turn around in how I choosing to live my life is for her. I want her to be proud of me.
Right now everything she does lights me up. I recently spoke to her on the phone and she fully pronounced "I love you (Mohegan)". When we last saw her at Christmas it was a jarble of toddler talk.
She turns 2 march 30th and with every milestone she reaches I feel like I have had some part in that. She is so smart, and so beautiful, and such a joy. Even when she is having a stubborn moment that could rival mine.
I love watching those blue eyes light up when she sees me. I love watching the gears turn as she puts things together in her head. Seeing her learn.
I think children are such a gift. They teach us as much as we teach them. Their innocence is a reminder of true honesty. They are so true to themselves.
I think any of us who have kids in our lives are truly blessed.
