  1. I absolutely loved those quotes... they are very nice.

  2. The tug at the pants leg is the best.

  3. Val,
    These were so good. I really loved them. Thank you!

  4. These are some of the most beautiful quotes I have ever heard in my life. I am so touched -- so moved. I want to cry right now, to just let out the emotion. You captured, with the quotes and verses you chose, the real essense of what it means to value a child. To value children. Each one is a new life, a beautiful person, ready to change the world. Never will there be another child quite like him, that will come along and take his place, and do the things he will do in this life! May each child, each new person born into the world, realize his full potential, and be all that the Lord would have him to be! Even if it is just to brighten the world with his smiles! May the Lord grant it, and may each one of us cooperate with His will!
