What a wonderful day! I feel so incredibly blessed to be the mom to such a wonderful, friendly, loving, fun, adventurous son. I also feel so lucky to have Eric, such a great partner in this adventure of parenting.
From the Baha'i writings:
"'O maid-servants of the Merciful! It is incumbent upon you to train the children from their earliest babyhood! It is incumbent upon you to beautify their morals! It is incumbent upon you to attend to them under all aspects and circumstances, inasmuch as God - glorified and exalted is He! - hath ordained mothers to be the primary trainers of children and infants. This is a great and important affair and a high and exalted position, and it is not allowable to slacken therein at all!' If thou walkest in this right path, thou wouldst become a real mother to the children, both spiritually and materially." - Abdu'l-Baha
How incredible to have been entrusted with such an important and exalted position!
