Meeting our new grandson for the first time.
My heart is full of the hope, promise and dreams a new life represents.
Struggling to find just the right words, I decided to share a few lines from
Kid President’s letter to a person on their first day here:
Today over 360,000 babies will be born and you are one of them.
Welcome! This is the world. It’s a pretty cool place. There’s lots to see, smell.
Try this, take a breath. Isn’t that amazing? It’s called breathing!
You’re going to do it a lot. But nobody knows exactly how much. So enjoy it.
Pay attention. Take brain pictures, because amazing things will happen every day.
You’re going to do so much.
But it’s not about what you do. It’s about who you are.
You? You’re awesome. You were made that way. You were made from love, to be love, to spread love. Love is always louder, no matter what.
Even if hate has a bullhorn, love is louder. So let your life be loud.
For now, remember this:
You’re awake. You’re awesome. Live like it.
We would love to see your first moment photos. Please share!
