Between my shadow and my soul

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

The luckiest thing about my life is that my sister stays on my way home from work. So, before I get home I get to meet my gorgeous 2 year old nephew. His excitement when he sees me makes me forget about everything.

That's why when I was overwhelmed by negativity this evening I found 2 sparks of hope. Watch, Read and Believe:

Generation To Generation

In a house which becomes a home, one hands down and another takes upthe heritage of mind and heart, laughter and tears, musings and deeds.Love, like a carefully loaded ship,crosses the gulf between the generations.Therefore, we do not neglect the ceremonies of our passage: when we wed, when we die,and when we are blessed with a child;When we depart and when we return;When we plant and when we harvest.Let us bring up our children. It is not the place of some official to hand to themtheir heritage. If others impart to our children our knowledge and ideals, they will lose all of us that is wordless and full of wonder.Let us build memories in our children,lest they drag out joyless lives,lest they allow treasures to be lost because they have not been given the keys.We live, not by things, but by the meanings of things. It is needful to transmit the passwords from generation to generation.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Children have the ability to unlock a place in your heart no one else can access...I know thats how I feel when I see my 5 year old sister...when she sees me, she'll always drop whatever she's doing and run into my arms...the best feeling on earth :)

I know its difficult...but dont internalise too much...(and I dont need to tell you this :)

The Little Prince is one of the heartest books I've forgotten I've read. And so, to fluff up the seat of your nephews pants;

"Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them."

"What makes the desert beautiful is that it hides, somewhere, a well."
