Another day in my adventure in babysitting. Take a look at this baby. I wonder what she is thinking. She has such a knowing expression on her face. I know that her awareness of the world grows as she grows. What kind of world will she grow up in? There seems to be so more violence and hatred out there today. How should we raise her? Do we want her to be tough and not take any crap off anyone? Will that help her to survive? For my part, I am trying to instill in her a gentleness of spirit and a compassionate heart. To me that's the only way to really live. Does this look like a tough girl to you? She's been pretty gentle with me so far.
