It’s your half birthday!!! I haven’t even had a chance to take your fancy six month picture yet. I’m too shocked it’s already been six months. You’ve been a human for six months! I’ve been a mama for six months! It’s hard to believe.
It’s been the most amazing and the hardest six months of my life. I wouldn’t trade being your mama for the wide, wide world.
On account of this occasion, I want to share with you a simple lesson we read in one of your books (The Three Questions) last week that I keep carrying with me. A little boy asks his friends three simple questions:
When is the best time to do things?
Who is the most important one?
What is the right thing to do?
In the end, his old friend the turtle tells him,
“Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is now. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side. For these, my dear boy, are the answers to what is most important in this world.”
You are so loved, my Beanshine, always,
