to fill and be filled

I want to raise children for so many reasons.
I'd like to raise children to influence and to be influenced. I want to watch them light up at new findings. I want to squeeze them and give them millions of little kisses on their soft little cheeks. I want to try and explain the unexplainable to them. I want to watch RK's eyes fill to the brim when he watches them ride their bike for the first time without training wheels, 'cuz he's spent hours in the road teaching them. I want to hear them whisper 'i love you kick and grampa' when my mom & dad put them to bed. I want to watch them play with their friends, and make little crafts, and laugh so hard they can't stop.
And I want a reason to subscribe to the juiciest little magazine I've ever seen, called SMALL.

Thanks to Bluebird for the link, and Andrea Land for the photo.
