May we teach our children joy,
Find beauty in the awkward,
Find beauty where you thought
it could not be,
or would not,
Find beauty in the merry,
Find beauty in the places
where you thought,
there was no
Find beauty in the softening
of the broken,
See all beauty
through the eyes of children,
for they carry
all the futures

Him: “The recipe?”
