Rosemary Hill

About a year ago, when my younger son was four, I was bowled over with surprise to find what an incredible heart he has. Don't get me wrong: both of my sons are wonderful, and they are both nice kids. But circumstances were such that I came to realize that my little one has a truly extraordinary temperament. He has the natural capacity for love, forgiveness and selflessness that I have had to cultivate every day of my life in myself. And for all my work, I have never come close to what he has naturally, nor do I imagine I ever will. I have never met anyone like him.
