This is one of my favorite poems about children, I have two of them that are framed and hang on different walls in our home.  An easy way to remind me about my precious little ones--that aren't so little.  Perhaps you'd like a reminder this weekend, too!

Children Are...

Amazing, acknowledge them.

Believable, trust them.

Childlike, allow them.
Divine, honor them.

Energetic, nourish them.

Fallible, embrace them.

Gifts, treasure them.

Here Now, be with them.

Innocent, delight with them.

Joyful, appreciate them.

Kindhearted, learn from them.

Lovable, cherish them.

Magical, fly with them.

Noble, esteem them.

Open minded, respect them.

Precious, value them.
Questioners, encourage them.

Resourceful, support them.

Spontaneous, enjoy them.

Talented, believe in them.

Unique, affirm them.

Vulnerable, protect them.

Whole, recognize them.

Xtraspecial, celebrate them.

Yearning, notice them.

Zany, laugh with them.

It is good to know that this resonates with each of you! It was and is a good reminder for me--that's why I have two of them up in my house. ;)

Rana, feel free to copy it. I found my little posters of it at Michael's.
