You remind me of a story I heard from a neighbor about my daughter, who she saw, for the first time, walking past her window singing her little bitty heart out like a little bird herself. Our neighbor said she felt “God” in the baby song, and believed that my baby knew a peace that many of us didn’t.

I think she was right. And I thank you for reminding me of that lovely moment…
