Precious memories embrace me, as I created this page.
Back when my Tina Marie was 6, I was expecting my son.
On several nights, Tina would lay her little head on my big
tummy and we would talk about babies and about Jesus.
I told her all I knew about Jesus, as she listened so closely
while I gazed into her beautiful brown eyes.
 
I believe that when children learn young about Jesus,
they will help take care of the future.
"Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as a little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 18:3
I believe Jesus wants us to see the world through the eyes of a child. To stop worrying about tomorrow. To leave it up to Him to provide us with everything we need. He wants us to start dreaming again. Dreaming about the impossible, a belief, as adults we tend
to label as foolish.  He wants us to forget the laws of probability, human logic and all other worldly knowledge that keeps us
from believing that there is more than we can see and do. 
Miracles, laughter and joy, the ability to let go
and let the sun shine on our face
and bring out a great big smile,
which has left so many of
us a long time ago.
Whether a woman becomes a mother during her lifetime or not, she is the daughter of a mother. The same is true of men, who are all children of their mothers. The connection between mother and child is deep and important. Even when children are estranged from their mothers, or mothers from children, that bond is there.
It is a bond like that of lovers, for in love, as in pregnancy and birth, bodies connect in the most intimate fashion.
I thank God every day for the children in my life.
I hope they will forever keep me young and never let me forget how to laugh or to smile.  May they help me to always remember not to see life so seriously.
I have to wonder who will be there when they are
grown to take their hand and remind them to slow down to see this world once again as they did
when they were just an innocent young child.
God be with our children always!
May we always remember: 

We don't stop playing and laughing because we grow old,
we grow old because we stop playing and laughing.
