Mother's Day message from a mom

Every year I receive gifts from my children and they keep on surprising me on Mother's Day. I will not be able to give back the gifts they gave but I want to post here what I would like to tell them every year and when the time comes that they will be adults and become parents too.

Here goes the Mother's Day message from a mom:

I've traveled paths you've yet to walk 
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom in my life
I'm blessed to share with you

Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad

Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side

Walk softly when you're angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter's power is immense!

Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don't shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold

Keep God's words right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it's near, you'll find a way

Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart

The world is far from perfect
There's conflict and there's strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life

And so I'm so blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my child
And I believe in you
