July 4, 2006- it’s when I met a little lady who, though only a 19.3 inches tall, has had a greater impact on my thinking and my whole person than many of the adults I have met. Her name is Triz Nicole. Now that she is almost two years old after I gave birth to her, 18 months and 10 days to be exact, she has grown to be a one fine toddler, able to express her own self- from her wants and needs to her frustrations and joys. Just so fulfilling.
If this is Triz as a baby and now a toddler, I am almost unable to comprehend what she will be like as an adult. There’s so much she will not have to endure, such as cynicism, fear of success or failure, or feelings of imperfection. Her mother and dad have provided her with tools that would render such things that would lead her to self-mastery. Her life is a simple but profound pursuit — an understanding of the facts of reality. I can’t wait to see her all grown up. I look forward to the day when she and I can speak about these things. I think she’ll become one of my favorite people. She has been a favorite kid lemme tell you!
