Babies Are Living Angels

It's not hard to come to the conclusion that babies are angels from heaven. They come to us so innocent and dependent that even the hardest of hearts can't help but feel that love and protectiveness rise in them.

Babies can dramatically change your life. You go from living for yourself, satisfying your wants and dreams, to all of the sudden, finding you putting yourself on the back shelf. Babies in their special way become the center of your life. Believe me you will never be the same.

Thinking along these lines made me look back at the time period when I was having my own babies. It was a time I would not change for anything. Yes, they are hard work, but who begrudges all that work when you are taking care of an angel.

Maybe babies are angels because they create, in us, the knowledge that real joy comes in serving, in helping, and in loving.
