Sweetest of Gifts

“Of all nature’s gifts to the human race, what is sweeter to a man than his children?”
-Marcus Tullius Cicero

We apologize for the lack of posts the last few days.  We had a power outage among other things.

Cicero is right, children are sweetest of gifts.  They can be frustrating and annoying, reminding us that the apple didn’t fall far enough from the tree.  They are also amazing and worth the time and effort.  My 2-year-old (almost 3) recites the English and Greek alphabets with the phonetic sounds.  Children are full of surprises.  On the other hand, pieces of wallpaper have been ripped from my living room wall.

Most parents in my experience do believe their children are gifts, and that gift should be cherished.  We are going to go on a picnic with the kids and enjoy this lovely weather.  Have a good day.
