Isn’t it interesting when a new child is born, and all is well, when everyone pours out their love and admiration for this miracle of life, for it is, indeed, a miracle.

We hear comments such as:

Your child has beautiful blue eyes

It’s a ‘feel-good’ statement, and we as parents, stand proudly, basking in the sunshine.

Your child has lovely, slender fingers. Perhaps he will be a pianist.

A statement that will make you look for all the signs, rhythm and movement, and once again, it’s yet another ‘feel-good’.
