My Children

It is not how much I have gathered
Through my honest work or even greed
In the end possessions won’t matter
But what flowers from each planted seed
I wanted them to have all my heart
And leave no part of my love unused
Give them an easier place to start
Let them find their own dreams to pursue
I wonder will they remember well
The lessons that I have tried to teach
Those things that I tried to gently tell
To show that hope is within their reach
To show them not to stand on the stage
Instead intermingle with the crowd
Always have the want to turn the page
Be the one of whom they could be proud
They’re the footprints that I leave behind
They will be my only legacy
They will be the story brought to mind
When my grandchildren remember me

Don’t underestimate the real cost of a book, as it is not found in its price, but in the investment of your most precious commodity — time.
Never underestimate the power of a good book to soothe your soul and inspire you.  Reading books is like recharging batteries, giving you new life with which to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.

And maybe, just maybe, it’s not always about showing the glitzy, polished parts of yourself.  Anyone can love that.  Maybe it’s about showing the broken, sharp-edged pieces of yourself to people.  Maybe that’s how you do it…  Find the one who truly loves you.  You have to to weed out the people who can’t see the beauty within your brokenness.

Love is a gift that must be given of free will.  It cannot be taken, bought, or negotiated for.  You’ll know when the gift is yours to keep when you have to do nothing to earn it but be yourself.
