As I held that tiny baby who was up for adoption I whispered the following: Nor comes the bad day when you have a smile to give away.
Remember the witch in Wizard of Oz is the wounded one. Don’t walk on the pond when the ice is fake frozen you will fall through. Love your new borrowed parents Stand up tall even if you’re the tiniest there. Do well in school always as there is honor in a trade. Listen to your heart always. Never fight without good reason. Stand up when your dearest Mum enters a room. Never apologize to a fool. Never borrow anything you can’t or won’t pay back. Don’t give your precious body away to a greedy selfish man or woman. Keep your body clean make it hard for illness to get in. Carry a shamrock in your prayer books. Remember these brief days we shared as I loved you deeply Never hang your head in shame as you are not second or third best. Keep your new clothing fresh and play in the old ones.
Remember I bought you the first dress you ever wore because no child is ever second best in the Lord’s eyes. Finally I thank you tiny baby for the reminding.
Your visit reminded me of my own value I seemed to have lost . Amen 🍀
