This week I am thankful for new life.
A new grand-nephew, born Aug. 1 and young friends have had
their first baby, born Aug 4.
As Carl Sandburg, one of my favorite authors, said,
"A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo planes don't compare with a newborn baby in the number and ingenuity of coils and springs, in the flow and change of chemical solutions, in timing devises and interrelated parts that are irreplaceable.”
