“Mom, when a baby is born, do they smell bad?” Isabel asked innocently.
“No, babies don’t smell when they are born.” I replied.
“What about their breath? Doesn’t their breath smell gross?” she asked.
(I wasn’t sure where all these questions were coming from, but I rolled with it.)
“When babies are born, their breath smells beautiful.”I replied.
Today, I went to a Child Survival Program here with Compassion in Ecuador, and I was reminded of this conversation I had with Isabel.
When the odds are stacked against the littlest in society, when poverty is prevalent, when life is fragile, the breath of a baby is a mothers joy.
Yes, the sweetest smell on earth to a mother, is Baby’s Breath.
