A new addition to my extended family last month has me thinking about the joy that comes from newborns. Beauty, mystery, wonder—all wrapped up in these tiny creatures.
Even as they lay there, doing nothing, not even opening their eyes, they still manage to capture our attention and our hearts.
Babies can’t do a thing on their own. They can’t even hold up their own heads. Yet even while they are incapable of the most basic self-control, infants can create a profusion of pride, love and gratitude in our hearts.
Just by sleeping in our arms.
