Wishes for my children..

I do not wish for my children to never know heart ache, But I pray that they may also know great love.

I do not wish for my children to never have their feelings hurt, But I pray that they never injure another.

I do not wish for my children to always win, But I pray that they are always good sports.

I do not wish for my children to accept my opinions as gospel, But I pray that they do believe in something.

I do not wish for my children to never know adversity, But I pray that they have the strength to overcome it.


I do not wish for my children a perfect world, But I pray that they try to make their's better.

I do not make wishes for my children, Rather, I pray that I've taught them how to make their own.
