What an amazing place! I didn’t want to leave….
Since being home, I find myself thinking about what time of day it is and what the children are doing.
I sure do miss playing with the babies and making them smile. We read books and played roll the ball. Their squeals and giggles were contagious! I especially loved meal time with the babies! Talk about an exciting time, as they knew exactly what was coming. They ate their food like little pros and didn’t mess around when it came to taking their bottles. I got to hold a few of the babies when it was bottle time. I remember just looking at each innocent little face and wondering what His plan was for them. I sang to them and talked to them and promised them that He was always with them and loved them. These are sweet memories.….
The little ones at New Day have such joy! This is obviously a result of the genuine love and care that the nannies and staff provide. Several times, I got caught up in watching the nannies and kids interact. It was a beautiful thing to watch when a little one was unhappy for some reason and their nanny would pick them up and love on them just like I would to my own children. The nannies love the children and it is so evident. In turn, the children know how to accept love and show love and affection to others. Getting to spend time with the children at New Day was truly a gift that will stay with me forever. I am so grateful for the experience that He allowed me!
