My Children

Listen to my thoughts
Open your ears
If only for 30 seconds

Because my life is closing
Whilst yours is opening

The spawning of new ideas
Comes with the cycle of life and death...

I have words
I have words of wisdom
In retrospect, OF COURSE.....

Can I offer them to you?

If so, I humbly say to you

Live for the moment
But remember there will also be a moment that follows that moment

Think about consequences
And then think about causes

Accept things the way they are
But change things that you believe you can

Hold a vision

And keep it firmly in your mind
Make it a positive vision
Keep negativity to a minimum

Use every talent you have
Make the most of everything you have been born with
But recognise the negative

Fear is your enemy
Love is your friend

Donít cry for what you do not have
Celebrate what you do have

Be kind
Be forgiving


But donít put up with cruelty
Or feelings of unworthiness

We all have flaws
And moments when things seem hopeless
They rarely are....
Hope is at one
With the common salvation

Learn what you can
From everyone you meet
From everyone you love
From everyone who loves you

Do everything without expectation
And you will receive
Everything you need

And remember
That whatever happens
A mother loves you
No matter how bad or how low you feel
THIS mother always loves you
