Today’s morning was different and beautiful. Not because I had consumed a good amount of caffeine or that I went for a long romantic drive but because I was awakened by a little baby who compelled me to abandon my dream valley. Usually I’m an early bird so I knew it wasn’t too late but finding a baby around my bed and my mum rushing all around with her high-pitched voice ensured me that today’s morning was dedicated to her guests. Without my spectacles, I am almost blind so I couldn’t make out how the baby looked like while I tossed and turned in bed fighting with the sheets and pillows. I rummaged on the bed trying to find my spectacles and finally GOTCHA! As soon as I saw that baby clearly; smiling to me holding the side of the bed, I dashed to her and held her in my arms! I then realized that brushing teeth first would be better and then after getting done with the morning systematic routine, I was with the baby. I have no clue why am I attracted towards babies too much but anybody can be the victim to their cuteness, isn’t it?
Innocence of babies is one main reason for attracting almost everybody. I love them for their beautiful ways to learn step by step. With a growing baby, you are learning new things everyday yourself. The babies never “GIVE UP”– a great lesson for all of us. They may fell down million times over when they are learning to walk or sit but their determination and will power is unbeatable. Trying to achieve what they see other people doing becomes their ultimate goal and they achieve it some way or the other. They start crawling, standing and then walking with support and then a time comes when the baby needs no support! His legs can bear his weight and he walks well enough. Life has a same psychology; it treats you like a baby. It bruises you and you have to learn to stand again. There may be many huddles and you may fell down many times over but your strength and determination is counted on for helping you to move on with the failures to embrace victory at the end of the day. I watched the baby who continuously tried to walk without support. She fell at times but all she did was look at me and laugh. It was the baby of some new neighbor who visited my mommy to know about the area and all. This baby made my morning pleasant and thoughtful. At times, life treats you in a certain way to learn from others being a mere observer. I was treated nobly by learning how a year old baby can be an inspiration for a new morning and the reason for my splendid smile.
Life is a saga
A panel of story ruled by the antagonist
Truth radiates the world
What a wonderful blessing you received with that girl child. the innocence of her laughter the happy struggle to walk…ahh that we could have such unbridled happiness and faith in learning to walk life’s pathways. Beautiful NAIMA just beautiful!
I know what you mean! It was beautiful to spend the morning with a beauty whose innocence was a lesson in itself! May GOD bless her.
Thank you for your beautiful comment, Len!
nice little contrast with the baby. i especially liked that second part of this and how that baby corrolates the struggles of life. how on earth would i know anything about that, right?..*L*. i would say the part about how the baby learns to crawl and then begins to walk relates to learning the process of how to find that femme. when say, such as i just re-learning on how to do it a number of years ago and then it was like falling flat on the face when went in another direction because i hadn’t fully learned the process. right now i feel like i’m walking in that process. a slow walk though, but has been worth every step:))
I adored your comment, simply! You narrated it beautifully! I am sure you know it better as you had babies yourself! Weren’t they an inspiration for you as your kids or were you an inspiration for your babies as a father? It can be both at a time too! It is all about time and how it tackles us!
it’s a much better process with the grandchildren. things are more peaceful now in life. you may have saw this on FB a bit ago when i mentioned that my 3 year old niece finally had recognized i was at her place and from 10 feet out she sprinted and into my lap. everybody that was at the table all stopped talking and stared at the moment. see i had something to offer but all the past femme experiences saw me for my money. i’m starting to rub it in a little bit as i’ll be the one to get what i want and it will speak for itself when i’m walking hand in hand with her in a mall (clothing) somewhere:))
Yeah, I read that status! It look so much fun when kids get along with us and with their growing up, we have an opportunity to take care of our habits and re-frame those where improvement is needed! I am always fascinated by what these young souls can teach us with their innocence and truthfulness!
excellent.!!!Its really pleasant,being waked up by a baby..I too had such experiences…….as u said,their innocence attracts us a lot…the best part of the article is “BABIES NEVER GIVE UP”…ur so correct in examing that..well done and have a good day naima….
Thank you for your kind comment, Akhil!
We learn from then and be their teachers too! So it is always the system of GIVE & TAKE!
What a beautiful story told with all of your talent, compassion and sensitivity . Good one Girl! BRAVO!
Thank you June! I love to be around babies!!
[ Smiles ] I see that you are quite the babysitter.

Not really a babysitter, just admirer of babies! I love to be around the most innocent beings on earth! They give us strength and their smile have some magic to enthrall you with optimism!
Thank you for your beautiful comment!
How tragic! A child so young and yet already trying to steal noses! lol
Your sense of humor is classis, Cranky! Hope you are doing well!
Finer than frog’s fur here. Hope you and the littlest thief are doing just as well.

I can’t agree more on this point, Alarna!
Lovely 🙂 u got lucky to have a baby in the morning itself 🙂 i too love kids 🙂
I know, babies can make up your day!!
There are many things we forget as we become an adult. First is the ego, we become an egoist, and less humble. We are afraid to show our weakness, and it is a shame to show our weakness. Secondly we develop memory which is both good and bad, because we are counting our failures, or successes, it is very difficult for us to accept to start something anew. Thirdly, the things we do, is all about comparing happiness with others. The online world has made this to the best.
Who can always look at this world with a fresh eye everyday? 🙂
Sorry,writing with a sleeping mind, but really enjoy your writing and it will bring me to dream.
Thank you so much for a beautiful comment! I am readin it in sleep and I hope it brings good dream to me tonight as well!
I have to catch up on your blog. I have been missing it lately : )
I am following your new life in Leicester anyway in your facebook, and wish that everything goes well. You have to be there for at least 3 years, and may be another 2 years of master study. 5 years will pass very soon once you find a group of friends =)!
I am on and off lately in writing the blog because I have little time to think and to write except for the work and for my mom.
Take good care, and be HAPPY!
That is a wonderful perspective on the way we all were at some point of time ( and are not so at the moment,sadly ). We all start of with enough energy to be whatever we want to be. But then somewhere down the line, we stop believing in ourselves. Lose the steam…
I am sure you would have come across this poem, but I would quote it nonetheless:
“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us… ”
Lovely post !
Your comment is always an insight in itself 🙂
Thank you for the appreciation and always expressin your point of view 🙂
Hi Naima, How are you
Hey. I am doing good! What about you? Thank you for asking. Much appreciated : )
You’re too much *LUCKY* to own that lil babe, Naima! Excellent perspective.\m/ 🙂
Thank you so much! Your comment made my day!!
You’re most welcome, Naima! 🙂
In order to develop a baby (all humans) need a source of security where they can go to. Naturally all new experiences are treated as a threat by the mind until it becomes familiar with it. A secure baby will happily explore the new world they exist in.
At times, I am dealing with wiser words coming in the comments rather in my post! I can’t agree more, Alex! After all, your experience makes you a winner ! Keep Smiling!
Awww.. Thank you!
