One of the most profound things about children is the simplicity of their presence and how they remind us of the wonder of our existence. There is no greater excitement than when the drool-covered lips of a baby turn upward and they spark their first smile. The simplest of human expressions, one we see hundreds of times a day without remark, and yet when an infant does it for the first time we rejoice and remember it’s power and the gift of relationship and connection.  And really on it goes with each milestone that these little ones reach. The movements and motions that often go without thought are celebrated when first done by a child. What if in those moments we allow these little ones to teach us to see the simplicity and beauty of what it means to be alive; to be a member of the human family, uniquely individual and yet undeniably dependent on one another. Putting one foot in front of the other is actually quite remarkable, no?
