Welcome little one

We have a new little one in our parish. She is so welcomed and we are all happy she is here!
What would we tell her? What wisdom would we want to share with a little one? Recently I got to hold and rock my 'nephew's" baby and I sang to him and talked to him and told him how much he was loved.
Isn't that what we all want to hear? It doesn't really matter how old we are! We just want to know that we are cared for, that people look forward to seeing us, that we matter in the world. Really? isn't that part of what you want? Isn't that what makes us buy billions in makeup or hair color or mouthwash or so many of the things that are sold to that we will be acceptable and loved?
Well, think about it. What is it that you want most? Think about this question and how perhaps you could be sure that someone else has it. I remember reading a statement that you have truly forgiven someone when you wish for them what is YOUR heart's desire.
What do you wish for these little ones? What in their life do you want them to know? Because to know you are loved is greater than anything one might 'have'.
Blessing to you
God abides
