LOVE is felt in hugs, cuddles, and touch
The warmth and security of loving arms mean so much!
PEACE is found in the silence between breaths
As the baby’s head drifts down to rest.
JOY is shared with that first little smile
Thrilling the hearts of both parent and child.
WISDOM is in knowing when to play, laugh, cry, or eat
Or just be calm, still, quiet, and sleep.
PURITY is innocence in all its simplicity
When little eyes widen and glow with wonder and humility!
