“A baby will make love stronger,

days shorter, nights longer,

bankroll smaller, home happier,

clothes shabbier, the past forgotten,

and the future worth living for”

There's a new baby in our world so this quote is quite apt for me today.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
