I’ve Learned
=============

I’ve learned that, no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles three things: 
1. A rainy day, 
2. Lost luggage, 
3. Tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’ve learned that, regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

I’ve learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. 
But, if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone. People love that human touch – holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

People will forget what you said … people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that you should pass this on to everyone you care about.

I just did. 

Sometimes they just need a little something to make them smile.

I wish

I have to share this poem with you. It is so beautiful and really reminded me of where I was goofing up on the kids. I have used the “Not Now” and “Clean up your room”  several times. I am quilty of evading my quality time to letting them enjoy The playstation or the computer games. But juggling between my kids, home and my business has definetly not been easy.. So I think this poem came as a reminder of slowing down and enjoying the moment with the kids. I am not certain who the author is so if you do, please let me know and I will glady credit it to her.

I wish .. .. ..

I was so busy through the day, I did’nt take the time to play.

When you brought your games to me, I told you “Not now,” and quietly,

I cleaned the house, I’d iron and cook, but when you’d bring your story book, And ask me to sit and read to you, I’d say, “I have too much to do.”

I’d tuck you in your bed at night, you’d say your prayers, I’d dim the light.

Too quickly I’d pass through the door, I should have stayed a minute more.

Life’s much too short, each year flies past, my little boy grew up so fast.

No longer playing by my side, for me to nurture and to guide.

The books and toys are packed away, no longer are there games to play.

No precious bedtime prayers to hear, that all belongs to yester-year.

My days once busy now are calm, the hours empty and too long.

I wish I could go back and do, all the things you asked me to.

At the time you don’t realize it, but raising your child is the best time of your life !
