I just couldn't resist this. My sister in law recently had her fourth baby and for a shower, there were beautiful Chinese fortune cookies decorated with baby booties. One of them had the most profound and inspiring sentiment which was penned by the English poet, Martin Farquhar Tupper. So, in honor of the Chinese New Year, focusing on spring and new birth, I thought I would share it...(also thinking of you, Kelly!)
A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure,
a messenger of peace and love,
a resting place for innocence on earth,
a link between angels and men.
Hugs to all you mommas who have been blessed with little ones, and also to those who haven't yet - but will be in due time! Happy Chinese New Year!
