of waiting and impressive influence: blogging baby burkholder

Yesterday's post was born out of a very tangible sense of responsibility welling up within me.

My Bella Areah will be here soon enough and every interaction I have with her will be a moment of influence. Everything will make some impression on her life - our habits in eating, praying, serving, watching TV, exercising, shopping, speaking, and generally living...

I cannot wait for her little eyes to meet mine. I cannot wait to watch her personality arrive, revealing itself in little bits and pieces. I cannot wait to be trusted with complete innocence. I cannot wait to repair that trust the first time I fail. Mostly, I cannot wait to find out what the Source intends to teach us through the angel he is sending.
