Ran across this quote about a year ago…
“Children Lighten Labors…” Anonymous
And though the past twelve months have been filled with high-highs and low-lows…one constant has been the joy I experience as I’ve watched our little guy grow and change (and constantly keep us entertained.)
It’s really true. Children (and their children) do lighten labors.
They give perspective…that life is always changing.
They give pleasure…just being in their presence.
They give purpose…living life right alongside them.
Children frequently are the agents that deliver the profound…just by being in their company and observing them change and grow.
I am looking forward to seeing how they continue to change and grow in 2012 and how I’ll change too…because of them.
