It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 4, Page 26, Book 10
There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading in the same direction,
so it doesn't matter which path you take.
The only one wasting time is the one
who runs around and around the mountain,
telling everyone else that their path is wrong."
When I read this quote I found myself thinking about how different we are all. Our lives are a potpourri of so many ways of living. But in some things we are all the same. I try to never judge what someone else does as I wouldn't like to be judged either. I've always been afraid to make mistakes and have other people judge me because of them. Keeping myself on track isn't always easy. People do make mistakes, but sometimes that is the only way to learn how to do things right.
Well today I'm taking on the job of caring for my grandson. Babies are not taken care of as they once were. My hope is that I don't do something wrong. I've got a lot of love to give this little one so I'm hoping things will go just fine.
Thankfully the basics of feeding, changing diapers and rocking them to sleep haven't changed so I'm thinking I can do what's needed in that department.
