A New Life (Weekly Inspiration #13)

One of the four best friends I described in my post “The Friendship Compass” became a father for the second time yesterday!  Todd’s amazing wife Jessica brought all 8 pounds 1 ounce of Ian Patrick Zapata Lile into the world for his first day on the planet.

This week’s inspiration is dedicated to Jessica, Todd, their first son Luke, and Ian.

If children grew up according to early indications,
we should have nothing but geniuses.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn child.
Carl Sandburg

The first cry of a newborn baby in Chicago or Zamboango,
in Amsterdam or Rangoon,
has the same pitch and key,
each saying, “I am! I have come through!  I belong!”
Carl Sandburg

Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life.

I love to think that the day you’re born,
you’re given the world as a birthday present.
Leo Buscaglia

A baby is an inestimable blessing and a bother.
Mark Twain

Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop.
The more you give, the more you get,
and the more you get, the more you feel like giving.
Penelope Leach

The best thing I’ve done?
Well, I’ve created four beautiful children.
You mean, other than that?
Donald Trump

A baby is born with a need to be loved – and never outgrows it.
Frank A. Clark

A baby usually wakes up in the wee-wee hours of the morning.

Which one is your favorite?

Congratulations Lile Family!
