    One of many blessing
    these precious little ones
    A wonderful gift from above
    It is a wonderful joy
    Watching them grow

    There were times I would be frighten
    The world can be so bend.
    I wanted to keep them close to me
    So no harm will come to them

    But they will only be babies
    for a little while.
    The best we could do for our little ones …
    Is to teach them how to survive.

    Playing hide and seek in the house
    taught then how to blend
    in their surrounding

    Simple game of Simon Says
    Trained them to listen
    With caution and care.

    Telling scary stories
    when the power went out
    during a thunder storm

    helped them to Understand
    it is OK to be scare,
    Don't be afraid.
    It will soon past on.


    To them it was a game,
    they did not know It was training.

    I explain to them about the games
    we use to play with them,

    And they smiled as they could see
    the pattern of there training

    Like a simple game of Chess
    helped them to make decisions

    In dealing in a child world you are
    force into a child level
    and the simple things giving to
    them help the adult in them.

    these are just a few clues
    to help in our young one up bringing
    They are babies only for a little while
    So enjoy them play games with them

    The Precious Gift of Life

    Wise Beyond Measure...

    We often don't see...the concept in the little things
    I loved what I learned in this piece...
    Blue...your waters run deep!

    Thanks for this!
