From a Mothers View

There I was just a little girl
Not knowing what my future holds.
I know you were the proudest parents in the world-
I was always known as, "Daddys little girl". 
I was cute and small, without a care in the world!
Sometimes I did what I was told.
I did everything my dad would do--
It was as if I was his little shadow.
My mom took care of my needs everyday--
I'd always hoped I would be like her someday.
My dad would teach me all about science,
Sometimes I didnt understand and I'd be in a trance. 
My dad taught me how to tie my shoes,
My mom would always comb my hair.
My dad taught me how to save my money,
And how to count it out too!! 
But now I am all grown up with a little girl of my own.
And I hope and pray that someday 
I can teach her all that I know.
I will teach her the lessons you both taught me,
And I will instill within her good morals-
Because you taught ME how to be a parent
And I want HER to reach her lifes goals.
I pray someday when she grows up,
She takes all that I have taught her
And she will thank me someday
Because I took the time to spend with her
As you have both with me.
I will have peace and joy in my heart,
Because what I taught her, I too learned. 
I was taught by two loving parents 
Who loved me as much as
