IF I had my child to raise again, a poem for all moms
June 3, 2009 2:43pm CST
This was published in the Lincoln County Baptist Association News Letter, it is by Diane Loomans If I had my child to raise over again, I d build self esteem first and a house later. I d finger paint more and point the finger less. I would do less correcting and more connecting. I ad take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes. I would care to know less and know to care more. I ad take more hikes and fly more kites. I would stop playing serious and seriously play. I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars. I d do more hugging and less tugging, I d see the oak tree in the acorn more often. I would be firm less often and affirm much more. I d model less about the love of power and more about the power of love. I think that there is no more than can be said about that.
