First Born

                                                   First Born 
                                          See the sweet little face,
                                       Know that you hold her fate in
                                       in your hands for years to come.

                                      Teach her well, for what she learns 
                                             at your knee will stay in her 
                                                   soul for all time.

                                        Then she's grown with a mind of
                                          her own, and your only hope is 
                                           she keeps what she's learned.

                                              All you can do is love her 
                                                  till the end of time.

    The best that one can do is the best that one can do. To be a part and influence of another soul is truly a Godly gift. We all have the eyes of children on us. May we revere the responsibility bestowed upon us as we continue on our own journey's. :) How's that for reiterating your message. :) Hi Anne. Nice to read another from you.

    It's always the love that nourishes and "grows up" good-hearted individuals. Those of us who enjoyed our children have a second chance to "do it all over again" with our grandchildren. Enjoyed this, Anne.
