begin the begin

What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make and end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.
from t.s. eliot's 1942 poem little gidding

'tis the season to celebrate birth and rebirth.

happy easter to all!

spring is the season of new beginnings. yesterday I met baby k. after years of waiting for a child to adopt some friends of ours got the joyous call that there is a baby needing a special home! baby k has had a rough start in life. he spent the first ten weeks of his life in the hospital. baby k is now in a new life surrounded by loving parents, a big brother, and a whole "village" of family and friends which welcome him into their hearts and arms. welcome home little k!

there is an end and there is a beginning.

birth and rebirth.

Congratulations to Baby k. and his new family! What a great way to celebrate Easter.

Did you get my email Kim? Daisy and I love her new neckerchief. Thanks again. She tried to eat the bone also in the envelope so I put it out of her reach on the fridge. :-)

Company coming here. Hope you have a joy-filled day.

This is the perfect Easter post, to me. I see Easter as being about more how Jesus lived, giving love to people just as he found them, than it is about his death.

So it is with baby K.

Blessed be.

Sometimes it's too easy for me to focus on endings without acknowledging the opportunity that change brings. Give the new parents my good wishes on their expanded family.

Ha! Never wake a sleeping baby, even if they are 23 years old! Love your Ukraine eggs too. Hope you had a lovely Easter and that spring is pouring in whilst our leaves are falling and the evening becoming chilly!
