A Poem- Can you show me what love looks like?
Showing love, teaches love!
Show a little love...
Show me happy, a mother says to her child.
Her child looks back at her and gives her a great big smile.
Show me sad, she then says to him.
And the child lowers his brows and wipes the smile from his face.
Now show me sleepy, she asks next.
He then rubs his eyes and droops his head.
Now can you show me love?
He nods his head as he looks at her,
Then he gently places his hand over her's.
He rises off his seat to kiss her cheek,
and repeats the words, that she so often speaks.
Sometimes I get mad, and sometimes I yell.
But at the end of every day, please know that I will always be here..
I will care for you when you are sick.
Protect you when you are scared there is something under your bed.
I will listen to your dreams your hopes and fears.
I will give hugs and kisses and wipe away your tears.
My love for you, is within each breath,
It is a love that will never fail-one which knows no regret.
Lay down your head, and close your eyes...
Find your dreams, knowing I’m right here- by your side.
A tear forms in her eye-and falls on her cheek.
He looks at her with worry, but does not speak.
She wraps her arms around him, and sets him in her lap.
Do not worry, I am not crying because I am sad.
I am crying because I am happy for all the love that I have.,
They Learn- They Grow- They Become... all starting with you! Show them Love!
Do not simply tell your children that you love them... show them, so they know what love looks like, and feels like. You have their attention, and they are watching and learning from every breath, and every step you take. Step carefully- you are guiding another life and helping them to determine who they will be and how they will perceive and treat the world.
I came across the below video on YouTube- and it struck a nerve with me, so I thought I would share it and perhaps it will strike the right nerve in someone who needs an attitude adjustment.
They are watching- Are you monitoring what they experience?
