Maybe my favorite thing I've found on Pinterest. No I am not going to be soft enough for people to know that they can hug me because they can't. I will determine when they can. Why because a hug means something. That's why I don't go around telling people I love them because it decreases the value of the phrase. I will tell it to people who I think are the one.
My Mom passed away 24 years ago, and I miss her so much still, and so sad she never had the chance to see her grandchildren grow into such beautiful people with kids of their own now. Always and forever in my heart, to one day meet again.
I have never read this before, but I already live by this. If you have kids and aren't doing this, please reconsider how it affects your kids. I'm not a perfect parent by any means but being a parent is a blessing and our window of opportunity to really mold and impact our kids is limited.
This was a "poem" framed in my room until I was six. I read it for two years with a heart full of hope until it disappeared. I've spent almost 30 years trying to find it...the words. And WOW...it's still so relevant. And it makes me want to cry that my child heart loved it.
