12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

My daughter had a book on the shelf for my granddaughter, and when I pulled it off to read her a good night story, I couldn't finish this little child’s book without tears filling my eyes. Complete with adorable illustrations of a loving Mama Bear and her cub, this author totally captured both the joy and the angst that fills a mother’s heart.  This summer as the days get hectic, and the kids have you ready to pull your hair out, think about this poem and realize these are the best days of your life. Enjoy them.

 I am your parent; you are my child. I am your quiet place; you are my wild.

 I am your calm face; you are my giggle. I am your wait; you are my wiggle.

 I am your carriage ride; you are my king. I am your push; you are my swing.

 I am your audience; you are my clown. I am your London Bridge you are my falling down.

 I am your carrot sticks; you are my licorice. I am your dandelion; you are my first wish.

 I am your way home; you are my new path. I am your dry towel; you are my wet bath.

 I am your dinner; you are my chocolate cake. I am your bedtime; you are my wide-awake.

 I am your finish line; you are my race. I am your praying hands; you are my saving grace.

 I have your favorite book; you are my new lines. I am your night-light; you are my star shine.

 I am your lullaby; you are my peekaboo. I am your good night kiss; you are my I love you.

“You Are My I Love You,” by Maryann K. Cusimano. Her dedication: To all the parents who love and all the children who need our love.
