“When you capture a child’s smile

I believe you are capturing a bit

Of the joy of life

The innocence

In laughing eyes!

When you capture a child’s smile

Genuine and real

Not some made up hollywood version

Of childhood

You remember the love

Jesus had for the children

And you cry the tears

For all those who experienced

Childhood lost.

When you capture a child’s smile

You are capturing

Genuine joy.”

This image of this young girl made in India lingers in my mind and brings  me comfort from what was otherwise not a good experience. I don’t know if I would say I “captured” this smile. It was more that it was given to me as a gift that I still cleave to my heart.

My you receive many gifts on your journey††††††nada te turbe†††jim
