Pablo Casals : Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.
I want to say a Huge Thank You to each of you who commented on my last post. Your kind words and thoughts have meant so much to both of us. It means so much to me that each of you took time out of your busy day to think of us. I hope in some small way I can repay the favor.
I chose the quote above and the photos for this reason.Aren't each of us Marvels? I think so . The pictures represent to me the seasons and times of life sometimes we are in the valley and sometime the mountaintop.I again thank each of you for helping us get thru the valley of these past two weeks.
