betsy, a teacher i so admire, just had a new little baby girl in march. she posted this lovely poem on her blog that i wanted to share.
we’ve all been waiting for you.
your arrival has been marked, has been recorded
in the universe,
in the galaxies,
in all of space,
in all of time.
you come with a birthright, written in love and sung
through all creation in words which promise
that no matter where you’re at,
that no matter who you’re with,
that no matter who you are,
~ rita ramsey
