the children are the life force~ their ease and resilience, their grace and fire inspires. i watch them live, and laugh and work, and follow their dreams. i include each one of these shining faces in my prayers... and hope to see them all live full, and rich lives. they each gave me a moment of their energy, they each stopped and connected with me. i send them blessings, and wish them joy. their lives are not easy, compared to ours, their lives require hard work from an early age. yet, they persevere, they flourish, they blossom.
