My daughter and her husband were up most of last night with their newborn son, Peter. I imagine they felt like they were in a place between sleeping and waking as the night wore on, but I know that is where they love Peter most. It's an unconditional love: their tender care, sleepless nights and many other future sacrifices will prove it.
But eventually there will be less crying and more smiles. And, according to J.M. Barrie, lots of fairies : "When a new baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born, and as there are always new babies there are always new fairies"... and Guardian Angels!
