At some point I transferred all my handwritten quotes onto computer. Well, not all, but the ones that fitted themes I write out frequently for people…. It's far easier to give people a list of themed quotations to choose from when they don't know what to say.
It's a good job too…. i've just looked & I have 4,842 pictures in my calligraphy file! Admittedly there's more than a few that could be deleted, but there's so much I don't have records of either.
~A parent holds their child’s hand for a while, and their heart forever
~A baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.
~Babies fill the world with love
~A baby makes love stronger, the days shorter, the nights longer, savings smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and a future worth living for
~A new baby is like the beginning of all things, hope, a dream of possibilities - Anonymous
~To be in your child's memories tomorrow, be in his life today - Anonymous
~A child has a special way of adding joy to every day.
The first sentence of the last one by JM Barrie, was in the very first concertina book that I ever sold!
'Babies are bits of stardust blown from the hand of God', attributed to Baretto
I loved this bit of lore that I found;
The old Irish, when immersing a babe at baptism, left out the right arm so that it would remain pagan for good fighting.
