Mama Credo

After a few late nights and many thinks, I have come up with this little credo.
Wanted to Share it with you.



What I wish for my Children

I wish for my children to understand gratitude-not be overwhelmed by STUFF!!

I wish for my children to anticipate a season or holiday or celebration, rich in traditions of all kinds

I wish for my children to feel a strong sense of identity by keeping connected to their community of friends and family and faith by these traditions and by making their own.

I wish my children to be about creating fun and general havok with homemade toys/crafts and simple rituals, learning to take care of them and fix them rather than dispose of them.

I wish for my children to love and take care of their home planet and live in ways to keep it 'alive and well 'in their lifetime.

I wish for my children to be allowed the innocence of childhood-without sexual innuendo, or a need to please the crowd as dictated by media

I wish for my children that I can guide them, and that they would have strong, clear minds to think and make decisions on their own as they grow.

Those are WONDERFUL things to hope for your children! It's so worthwhile to have a direction so it's easier to keep some perspective in those tougher moments.

I think those are pretty good things for big people to keep in mind too, O Wise One!
