Daily Haiku - Birth Day

daily encouragement written by paul

child born whole today
celebrate in springs to come
mother's deepest pain


My son (daughter): May you appreciate your pains, and the pains of those around you. Pain is a teacher, and we can not only learn from others’ pain but we can also appreciate the value of our efforts: Pushing through pain is often the only way to grow and change, and so attention should be keen to appreciate and take advantage of pain so that bad pain is not repeated while good pain can be welcomed. May you make pain your friend in life, and learn quickly from it.
