Lessons From The Heart

Poem By Vickie Forrest Wiggs

We yell at our children probably more than we should.
We forget they're just kids, and can't always be good.
The things that they do that make us so mad,
When thought about later.. didn't seem so very bad. We tell our kids to be quiet not to say a word,
But we need to listen to our children for they need to be heard.
If we don't listen while they're little, they won't try when they're grown
To talk about the things..that they will learn on their own. Don't set your standards too high, for kids are way too short
To reach your expectations without your confidence and support.
Be proud of their accomplishments, no matter how small,
They need your approval...so they too may walk tall. Allow room for mistakes, for you have made one or two.
Don't be so quick to judge, like others judged you.
Try to be their friend, to listen before you speak,
Give the strength of understanding...when mistakes have made them weak.

Toy Soldier

I have a toy soldier that sits high up on my shelf,
I'm not allowed to play with him, so he sits there by himself,
He looks so alone, yet so handsome and tall,
As he watches over me... fighting for us all. I wish that I could reach him, just to tell him that I care,

Rain

When it rains she thinks of you,
For, raindrops fall like teardrops do,
Forecasting the storms, your highs and lows,
Will it rain again tomorrow?.. No one knows. You were loud like the thunder, yet thunder brings no harm,
