My one shining moment occurred in March of 1958 when my first born child, a son, was placed in my arms. Unwrapping the blanket, I examined each small, perfect part. Ten fingers, ten toes (two joined to the first joint exactly as his father’s). Two bright eyes peered at me above a button nose. My eyes filled with tears of joy and amazement at this miraculous gift of life with which I’d been entrusted. I prayed for the wisdom to guide him wisely to manhood. I prayed he’d learn real jewels are in sunsets, that riches are found in the loving of souls touched along life’s way, and I was profoundly grateful for this wondrous gift..... this one shining moment.
