Today my daughter was born, a moment of immense joy in my life. I feel blessed by God to have been entrusted with the task of caring for and loving this little child.
It’s important to remember that we all came into this world thanks to our ancestors, and we should express our gratitude for that. We should value the importance of family and honor those who came before us.
When we bring a new life into the world, we often think that we are making that decision, but in fact, there is a much deeper spiritual connection involved. Before we were even born, our spirits were already meeting in spiritual circles, agreeing to embark on this earthly journey together. Just as our parents and ancestors did for us, we also made this agreement with the being who is now our daughter.
Therefore, we must reflect deeply on the meaning of this connection. We must be fair, courageous and honorable in our role as parents. Our love for this child must be unconditional, and our care and guidance must be constant in order to help her on her path of growth and moral development.
In addition, we must be aware that the arrival of a new family member brings with it a series of responsibilities and challenges. We need to prepare ourselves to provide the best education and opportunities for our daughter, ensuring that she has a solid foundation on which to build her future.
We must also remember that each child is unique and has their own talents and interests. As parents, it is our duty to nurture these skills and encourage our daughter to explore her talents, whether in art, music, sport or any other area that delights her.
In addition, as our daughter grows up, we must be prepared to face the challenges of adolescence and help her navigate her emotions and discoveries. We must be open to dialogue, offering a safe and welcoming environment for her to express her thoughts and feelings.
In short, the arrival of our daughter is a moment of great joy and responsibility. We must honor this spiritual connection, be loving and dedicated parents, offer her the best opportunities and support her at every stage of her growth. We are grateful for the trust that God has given us and we look forward to witnessing her life journey with love, care and admiration.
Thank you to St. Francis of Assisi (Father White Arrow) for this incredible gift.
