Then it becomes a little person, it grows some more, it has character, it lives, it laughs uncontrollably, it has moods, good and bad. It is impossibly adorable. It is a little boy or a little girl, carefree, care-less, cared for.
Then a pre-teenager, teenager, then, young adult. Not usually so adorable. It is so alive. Living so hard. Hard to live with. It learns, it lives, it hurts, it grows. It maybe produces another life, it has a life. It learns how to live better. It learns who, what, when, where and why. Hopefully, it grows a lot. It searches, it finds.
It approaches the middle. It looks ahead, it looks behind, hopefully not too much. It learns how to live well, it learns to forgive, forget, make do, get by, give thanks, let go. It takes pause, regroups, goes on.
Then there is the beginning of the end. It fades, it slows, it aches, it waits. It knows there is an end. It prepares, it weakens, it falters, it reflects, it resigns, it surrenders, it dies. It is the end. But not really. It is the new beginning. The beginning of an eternity. Alleluia.
