I love the careful placement of your poems words. Makes the already touching message, all the more meaningful.
Very true but when love is present forgiveness can, also be modeled and learned, too.
They not only observe, they replay what they see. Always do your best.
I am fallible. I let my students know this, and it makes my errors less painful. Though there are always times that I open my big mouth and say something from the hear that should be kept quiet. Even after experiencing the downfall of this, I still seem to end up saying something regretful at least once a month. Life is a process!
A lesson I keep learning...and words in fun to one can be so hurtful to another. Knowing how and when and what to say can be so difficult.
