I read this on another blog I read, and I think it is beautiful. I hope its true. I hope I'm worthy of being Sammie B's mommy . . . I will give all that I have (along with Daddy B of course) to help her fulfill her greatest potential and life's purpose:
"Did you ever wonder how a child ended up with a specific mother? According to Sufi mysticism, the soul of the child looks down at the world and sees every soul that resides in every woman. When he finds the one that will be able to help him fulfill his life's purpose, he makes his choice. The relationship between the mother and child is no accident."
I think I like the Sufis ;o)
