When my daughter was born a friend of mine gave me a wonderful book called 100 Promises to My Baby. It was written by Mallika Chopra as a loving commitment to her children that reflects her deep awareness of the value of parenthood. I was so completely taken by the beauty of it that I was inspired to start my own aspirational writings for my children. I think that these beautiful blessings would inspire any parent to think about their own lives and values, and the genuine nature and importance of loving your children and cherishing all of those wonderful moments. This book is just such a beautiful reflection of the gift of unconditional love that a parent experiences – I felt that I had to share some of her promises…
