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.
