A hug of Love by Kwadwo Kwarte

 

Take time to be friendly,

Take time to be true,

Take time to help others

And they will help you.

 

(*)(*)(*)(*)

 

Take time to be humble,

Take time to give praise,

Take time to love one another

Thru all the difficult days.

 

(*)(*)(*)(*)

 

Take time to be thoughtful,

Take time to show others you care,

Take time to tell friends and family

.

There’s a recipe for friendship that’s old but still true
It’s one that never fails, and I’d like to share it with you
.

***

.

First, you need someone who accepts you as you are,
Someone who doesn’t need you to be some kind of major star.

.

***

.

Someone who’ll cry with you and share your deepest pain,
Someone who’ll lift you till you can stand again.

.

***

.

Someone who finds your jokes funny and laughs to show it.

An excerpt from

The Heart of a Teacher

by Paula Fox

.

The child arrives like a mystery box…
with puzzle pieces inside
some of the pieces are broken or missing…
and others just seem to hide

~*~

But the HEART of a teacher can sort them out…
and help the child to see
the potential for greatness he has within…
a picture of what he can be

~*~

Her goal isn’t just to teach knowledge…
by filling the box with more parts
it’s putting the pieces together…
and creating a work of art

~*~

The process is painfully slow at times…
some need more help than others
each child is a work in progress…
with assorted shapes and colors

~*~

First she creates a classroom…
where the child can feel safe in school
where he never feels threatened or afraid to try…
and kindness is always the rule

~*~

She knows that a child
can achieve much more
when he feels secure inside
when he’s valued and loved…
and believes in himself
…and he has a sense of pride

~*~

She models and teaches good character…
and respect for one another

Faith of a Child

The father, a well digger,
Strong was he,
And as loving and kind
As a father could be.

~*~

And Mary his daughter,
Just five years old,
Was very much dearer
Than millions in gold.

~*~

To Mary her father
Was big, grand and nice,
So each had a treasure,
Beyond any price.

~*~

One day to the well,
Little Mary was sent
To take daddy’s lunch,
How gladly she went.

~*~

You are an Angel to Me

You are the Angel who I cherish,
So dearly in this heart of mine;
The one who makes my day brighter,
By making my whole world shine.

+++

During all the darkest moments,
When my skies turn cloudy and grey,
You’re the one who touches my heart,
And makes everything seem okay.
