Act of Kindness Update

IT'S A GIRL……HANNA ARRIVED TODAY

Maia (mother) and Hanna are doing well. As many of you know, it was touch and go due to Maia's Heart problem. Many of you emailed encouragement's to Maia at Lapskuasgirl@aol.com. Your prayers and well wishes were greatly appreciated.

For Mudcaters who would like us to stay focused, the follow song was inspired during this event.

A GRANDPAS PRAYER<(BR>
Lord, where will those little feet take her,
what will those little hands hold.
what will those little ears listen too,
what will those little eyes behold.

Lord, wrap your loving arms around her
keep her save in the palm of your hand
Fill her life with joy and peace,
On your principals help her stand.

May she be granted beauty; and yet not
Beauty to make a stranger's eye distraught,
Or hers, before a looking glass; for such,
Being made bautiful overmuch,
Consider beauty a sufficient end
And never know the strength to make a friend

(From dubious memories of Yeats' "Prayer for My Daughter", by a fireside)

Congratulations to proud and (I am sure) tired parents, and to young Hanna for making a way into this whacky world!

"Trailling clouds of glory!", as my father said to me, on the birth of our firstborn.

God bless Hanna

From: Amos

Correction:

For Hanna

I have walked and prayed for this young child an hour
And heard the sea-wind scream upon the tower,
And under the arches of the bridge, and scream
In the elms above the flooded stream;
Imagining in excited reverie
That the future years had come,
Dancing to a frenzied drum,
Out of the murderous innocence of the sea.

May she be granted beauty and yet not
Beauty to make a stranger's eye distraught,
Or hers before a looking-glass, for such,
Being made beautiful overmuch,
Consider beauty a sufficient end,
Lose natural kindness and maybe
The heart-revealing intimacy
That chooses right, and never find a friend.

W.B. Yeats, "Prayer for My Daughter"
