Ingrid Goff Maidoff - Tending Joy

Celebrating Poetry, Beauty,
& the Sacred Essence of Joy


For children everything is new.
Children come fresh from the source.
Time spent with a child
is an opportunity to rediscover
the Divine, wonder, gratitude,
dances of joy and delight,
spontaneous songs,
innocence, essential goodness,
laughter and good mischief.

Children give their hearts easily.
They fall in love freely.
Learn from them.
Fall in love…
with your child, with yourself,
with your partner,
with your work.
Reconnect with those good feelings.
You still know them.
They are there inside you.
