I received this poem in an email yesterday and it really touched me. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did too. Let me know what you think by commenting below.
If I had my child to raise all over
If I had my child to raise all over again,
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
