The Echoes Of Your Life

My daughter sent me a text

Telling me something

She told someone

About me.

It said

“I told him my mom doesn’t hate anyone”.

That

Made me feel like I was doing something right.

It’s when your kids talk about you

That you can hear

The echoes of your life’s values and behaviors.

    Mine are a bit tongue tied I think but sometimes I see a bit of me in what they do. I’ll have to be happy with that for now.
    Go you.

  14. That is very nice. The check out lady at the grocery story told me that she told her daughter about me, saying, “Remember the woman I told you about with three girls? She’s finally having a boy!” Not quite the same, but a similar feeling. 😉
