You really get back what you project. I have seen it happening so often. I think it is all to do with the energy pool that we live in, the so-called Higgs field.

For example, my youngest child G dislikes toddlers.  She is a teenager and she sees no reason to like little children who can be tiresome, uncommunicative and unresponsive. When her cousin offered G his new baby to hold, G said, “No thanks” with the feeble excuse, “I might drop it.”  (It????)

But with this little girl called Rania, G responded all together very differently, much to her own surprise. Because unlike most toddlers, Rania projects big love.  This is very unusual, because toddlers are in the self-absorbing stage.

Within minutes of meeting G, Rania said, “Temani aku, donk” which means, “Please accompany me.” She said it with her little hand pushed insistently into my daughter’s and those dark eyes smiling up at her new ‘big sister’ hopefully.

Rania has an amazing start in life, which is perhaps what that made her the way she is. Her birth mother was unable to keep her, and for a while, she was in the baby unit in the hospital she was born. My boss, who was the doctor at the hospital, took her home and began the adoption process.   The amazing thing is, my boss’s patients contributed their breast milk to Rania, right up till she was one.  I remember looking at the rota, the list of mothers who promised their breast milk to this little girl, and marveling at that piece of paper. The whole industry of collecting and dropping off breast milk showed me how we can come together to do good.

My boss and his wife have also opened their house up to Rania’s birth mother, so that she has the opportunity to get to know and love her child. I find this totally amazing. So much love and selfless giving, the best of humanity, poured into this child.

Thus, little Rania projects that big love that she was given  from birth ❤  You can’t help but fall in love with her. Rania, queen of our hearts.
