MARY HASKELL [1873 - 1964]
Nothing You Become
Will Disappoint Me
Nothing you become will disappoint me;
I have no preconception that I’d like to see you be or do.
I have no desire to foresee you, only to discover you.
You can’t disappoint me.
This is so beautiful. I keep reminding myself of this in moments when I forget that the children who share my life are a gift from God - an opportunity for me to know beauty.
