My Dream for you

I created this layout today focusing on the sweet baby grip! There is nothing more precious and bond forming then when a baby reaches out to make contact.
I suppose this is why complete strangers have a need to walk over to your child, reach out and grab their hand. {As I cringe concerned about their grubby germs on their hands! hahaha} It is that grasp from a newborn child that connects us one to another!
This page contains the most wonderful poem I found by Sandra Lewis Pringle in 1999.
It was so fitting for this page!
You may hold a child's heart forever,
but you can't always hold onto their hand.
You must lead them, guide them, love them,
every day, in every way you can.
When they grow up and move away,
a piece of you goes, too.
You just hope that they'll always remember,
the fragments of love, instilled by you.
You hope that they'll remember,
that life is not all about self gain.
You hope that they'll remember,
to cover their heads, while out in the pouring rain.
You hope that they'll remember,
all the fun times they've had.
You hope that they'll remember to seek the Lord,
when times are both good and bad.
You may hold a child's heart forever,
but you can't always hold onto their hand.
You must lead them, guide them, love them,
every day, in every way you can.
