Today Emunah turned two years old. Wow, time does fly. While I think of all of my children all of the time, I realize that this blog was started on the occasion of her birth. I try to contribute to it once a week in her honor. While I have no illusions that any of my children will read this for many years, I hope that this blog will serve as a testament to my intention as a parent. Years from now I hope that they read it and reflect on how they hope to parent.
I saw this recently and it reinforced my commitment to keep this habit up.
I realize that I have to write with conviction. So I hope that this next year brings me more insight into who I am and who my children are becoming. F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “An author ought to write for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmaster of ever afterwards.” Who knows maybe one day some of the stuff I write will be meaningful?
Happy Birthday Emunah.
