On the Move...

If your child asks for you to read this book...

...to him before his nap, as mine did today, be prepared. Be prepared to cry big tears as you hold your babe tight, reading inspired words. Be prepared to talk in that ugly-cry voice, as you're trying to hold in back, but you're losing the battle. And if you're lucky, as I was today, your sweet babe will start to fall asleep in your arms as you read. His breath becoming even, his weight heavy against your chest. Be prepared for an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. Of love. Of hope for our world. I was. I am.


  1. What book is this? I can't see the title...

  2. Oh, duh. Just read the title of your post. Sorry. Long day. :)

  3. I love this book. Actually we all do. And yup, brought tears the first few times it was read.
