    Can you hear the rush of the business world when the sun wakes up the sky? Can you hear the cries of a little girl when she asks the question, why? Why must we spend time with her? Why is there excuse? If the children are our future, what do we have to lose?

    Can you hear the voice of a little child when their questions seem absurd? Can you hear the voice of a little child when inquisition strikes a nerve? Why must we be impatient with them? Why must we cut them short? Let us listen, spend a little time and hear a child's report.

    Can you hear the roll of the thunder as the white clouds turn to gray? Can you hear the sobs of a little boy when there's sorrow and dismay? Why must we be dismissive with him? Why must he be strong? Is he allowed to shed a tear when all to him is wrong?

    Can you hear the voice of a little child when he wants to share his day? Can you hear the sound of a troubled home when parents are in fray? Why does one pretend he's not there? Why must he be ignored? Can we stop and look into his eyes and see what they implore?

    If the children are our future, what do we have to lose? There's mystery in every voice. There's beauty in every youth. We must strive to have an ear to hear the voice of a precious child. Come listen with an open mind. Sit down and chat a while.

    This is a very important subject!

    I can almost here the whispers of the child asking for attention but afraid to disturb the always busy parent.
    I remember these slogans from my own childhood...
    "Have you hugged your kid today?"..."It's Ten o'clock do you know where your children are?"
    And the latest wave of Public relations campaigns that implore us
    " Put Kids First"! what a sad statement that we have to be reminded to do what should come naturally.

    Blessings On ya HOuse!:nono: :nono: :nono: :nono: :nono:

    I truly believe at some time or another in our childhood life, we may have personnally experienced the loneliness and comfort that only a parent can give. And now that I have children of my own, I put forth my best effort to include them in my life no matter how busy I am so that they will always know how cherished they truly are to me. Thank you for your encouraging words.

    The Voice of A Little Child reminds me also of a child longing to attain their parents attention but reluctant to bother the always busy parent. However time loss may never be regained and we must remember to cherish each and every day because tomorrow is not even promised. We must cherish our loved ones today so there is no regret tomorrow. Thank you for feeling my heartfelt convictions. May God bless you and yours as well.

    Hello My Sister ... this peace speaks to the Mother in me
    with trouble on every side
    where do the babies hide

    thank you for this peace :heart:

    Thank you tooooooo for signing my guest book !!! :love:
    I deleted that top entry, thinking it was just a duplicate,
    then after pressing the "it's gone forever" button ... i
    remembered glimpsing a small change ... the addition of
    your name here on the forum ... and i was like ... danggg
    hoping i hadn't deleted some other extra special love
    that might have been in that entry ... :) ... sorry for the
    mistake ... and i do thank you for the love ... so glad
    you are here with us.

    :heart:
