  • The MOST important and valuable work on this planet is to do all that you’ve written and more. Gestating, birthing, and raising our children by giving to them more than we ever knew we had or could give as well as providing them with the daily, minute, hourly opportunities to grow and learn can never be replaced. 🙂
