It’s interesting to note that today is ‘Shichi-Go-San‘ in Japan!
“A a traditional rite of passage and festival day in for three- and seven-year-old girls and three- and five-year-old boys, held annually on November 15 to celebrate the growth and well-being of young children.”
We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that one is a someone today. ~adapt. Stacia Tauscher
Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky. ~Fran Lebowitz
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm. ~Bill Vaughan
Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said. ~Author Unknown
Little girls are cute and small only to adults. To one another they are not cute. They are life-sized. ~Margaret Atwood
Little children, sweet and lovely
Buds from Heaven sent to earth!
Let us love them, teach them, guide them,
Fill their lives with joy and mirth…
Looking up with eyes of laughter,
Holding out their tiny hands;
Bless these little ones, oh, Master!
Precious children of all lands!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, “Little Children” (1940s)
Cheers to a Terrific Tuesday that sings—a ‘bless all the dear children’ kinda day!
