Whisper in their ears......

There are so many things I want to whisper in their ears. When they are still and sleepy and holding my hand...........


There are so many things that I want to say to them after a busy and fun day.

I want to say how special they are - but I want them to be humble.

I want to tell them to be happy but I want them to be able to handle it when they are sad.

I want to tell them that they can do anything that they want but I really don't want them to do anything that they want - think of the chaos in my van alone!!!!!

Tonight I decided as I whispered in the soft little ear and tucked the little footed jammie under the covers that I would whisper

Try

I want you to try.

I want you to try anything and everything but learn from your choices.

I want you to try hard.

I want you to do your very best at everything you do.

There is so much that can be solved with just a little try.

So that is what I whispered tonight

In the soft little ear

I kissed the sleeping cheek and I tucked them in a little tighter and all I whispered was

try

I discovered you through Mimi. I am so impressed the way you write and think of your children. Mine are adults now, but I understand how you feel; you must be a great mom.
