A Poem

I found the following poem on one of those little business size cards you find in the Hallmark stores to insert into a regular card. I was buying a card for my 20 year old son, Josh. When I read these words, I purchased the little card to send him as well.

***************************************************************************

A POEM TO HELP MY SON BE STRONG ALONG THE PATH OF LIFE
You've got a big heart.
Keep it filled with happiness.
You've got a fascinating mind.
Keep finding new ways to grow.
Keep yearning. Keep learning.
Keep trying. Keep smiling.
And keep remembering that
a parent's love goes with you...
everywhere you go.

Hey Pam it has been awhile since I've dropped a little hello note to you. You are so faithful in always updating your journal and me I just get too busy. I need more friends to look at my journal it's no fun if it's only for my enjoyment;) Well, I hope you are having a great summer.
