How Love Raises Children

  • When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you hang my drawing on the refrigerator, and I wanted to draw another one.
  • When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me, and it wasn’t even my birthday, and I knew that little things are special things.
