Children of Substance
Laughed as she came to my cradle
'Know this child will be able'
Laughed as she came to my mother
'Know this child will not suffer'
Laughed as my body she lifted
'Know this child will be gifted'
With love with patience, and with faith
She'll make her way"
- Natalie Merchant
Yes I have always liked this part of the song. It fills me with hope, love, joy and truth. Love, Patience and Faith...yes we have love, I have faith and we all work on patience.
The past 2 days have been more successful in terms of parenting and grace. Our home has undergone a transformation of sorts and the children seem to have benefited from an enhanced flow. Now we only need to translate this to our homestudies...one can hope!
