Thoughts on Children

I recently found these thoughts, and I loved them, so I thought I would share them with you.

"Parents everywhere realize that the most powerful combination of emotions in the world is not called out by any grand cosmic event, nor is it found in novels or history books, but merely by a parent gazing down upon a sleeping child."
President Thomas S. Monson
They are the idols of hearts and of households!
They are angels of God in disguise;
The sunlight still sleeps in their tresses,
His glory still gleams in their eyes;
These truants from home and from Heaven,
They have made me more gentle and mild;
And I know now how Jesus could liken
The kingdom of God to a child.
Charles M. Dickinson

"I love these little people, and it is not a slight thing, when they, who are so fresh from God, love us."
Charles Dickens

You just made me cry, as I sit and rock my sleeping little one! Thanks for the reminders!
