Continuing with my list of 10 things I love - here's my number 8. Actually, it's a tie between 2 because both of these provoke strong sentiment.
First, it is the laughter of children at play. 'Tis one of the most beautiful sounds in the world...a sound of innocence, and energy, and excitement, and freedom.
Second, I love to hear a newborn baby cry. So precious. And helpless. To watch the new mother care for her baby with gentleness, and patience, and love is simply divine!
