The Spirit of a Child

Things I've Learned from my "Spirited" Child

I wish I had the care-free spirit that washed the stress of the world away

I wish I was so comfortable in my own skin that I could "beat to my own drum"

I wish I could speak as honestly as he does without worrying about what other people think

I wish I could be as happy playing with a empty paper towel tube and big box

I wish I was as imaginative and creative

I am so thankful that he is our super-son. I am thankful he has a teacher who doesn't see children as "cookie-cutters" - they are each unique, special and individual in their on way. I pray that God will teach to me be the loving mom he needs with a "spirit" that will harmonize with his.
