What 1 Year Can Do… Meet Reese.
Meet Reese. She just turned one. One year for you and I is a small occurance, almost as trivial as planning a dinner date with a friend. It is only 1/16th of a typical schooling experience, It is a starter for anniversaries, it is a typical amount of time for escrow to go through. But now measure the value of a year by looking at this young girl. In one year, she has learned to smile, she has come to enjoy particular company. She has experience love and enjoys returning affection to those who care for her. She has developed a keen taste for sweets. She likes the touch of certain things, and not of others. She walks, she runs, she enjoys the warmth of the sun and coolness of ice. If only we could learn, and learn to love life at the rate this this young girl has in just one year, we would find ourselves in heaven in no time at all.
I have no doubt that those who care for Reese most — Mom, Dad, Grandmas, Grandpas — have re-learned the value of one year by watching the sweetness of this little person grow.
Measure your years by the love that grows in the lives of those you love, and your eyes will be opened to maybe as much discovery as this young lady has experience over the past one year.
