Mud puddles and Dandelions...

When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that
are going to take over my yard. My kids see flowers for Mom
and blowing white fluff you can wish on.

When I look at an old drunk and he smiles
at me, I see a smelly, dirty person who
probably wants money and I look away.
My kids see someone smiling at them
and they smile back.

When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a
tune and don't have much rhythm so I sit
self-consciously and listen. My kids feel the beat
and move to it. They sing out the words. If they
don't know them, they make up their own.

When I feel wind on my face, I brace
myself against it. I feel it messing up my
hair and pulling me back when I walk.
My kids close their eyes, spread their
arms and fly with it, until they fall
to the ground laughing.

When I pray, I say thee and thou and grant me this, give me that.
My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and my friends.
Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't
want to go to Heaven yet. I would miss my Mommy and Daddy."

When I see a mud puddle I step around it. I see muddy
shoes and dirty carpets. My kids sit in it. They see
dams to build, rivers to cross and worms to play with.

I wonder if we are given kids to teach or to learn from?

No wonder God loves the little children!!
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may
look back and realize they were the big things."

My wish to you....
Mud Puddles and Dandelions and
may God bless this day for you!
