Personal Ramblings

my precious Tara

I think of her every day. Every single day. It was she who taught me to love better.
Till Tara came along, my circle of love was intense but restricted–to my immediate family. Everyone else received supportive and honest, yet restrained affection. I was the kind who had difficulty holding my own baby in a dirty diaper let alone a stranger’s.
And then came Tara: Abandoned at the hospital and cared for by Erik and May-Louise, short-term volunteers. When they left, there was no one to take car of her and the Holy Spirit gave me no peace until I picked her up and took her home.
She came into my arms and taught me how to love better. Today she is in Australia with her new family; but she’ll always be part of mine too.
