What is it about babies that we just love so much?

When our first daughter was born, my brother came to visit us. Our daughter was old enough to travel so my brother wanted to take her to the mall on a little shopping trip. You know, the kind of shopping trip where the single uncle spoils his new niece.

So we packed him up and off they went. When he returned several hours later, he said, "People love babies. Everywhere I went, people stopped me and wanted to see her and talk with her." Being single, he especially liked it when the attractive women stopped him.

What is it about babies that we love? Babies are just so real, so honest, so much themselves. They need something, they let you know. Otherwise, life is great and they smile and coo and play. They're innocent, not requiring a whole lot that we can't provide.

Babies really inspire us to do the same, to live a simple life; to enjoy the present moment because babies don't worry about yesterday or tomorrow.

Live Positive like a baby today and make a life worth living.
