When I look at a patch of dandelions, I see a bunch of weeds that are going to take over my yard.
My kids see flowers for mom and blowing white fluff you can
When I look at an old drunk and he smiles at me, I see a smelly,
dirty person who probably wants money and I look away.
My kids see someone smiling at them and they smile back.
When I hear music I love, I know I can't carry a tune and don't
have much rhythm so I sit self-consciously and listen.
My kids feel the beat and move to it. They sing out the words. If they don't know the words...they make up their own.
When I feel wind on my face, I brace myself against it. I feel it messing up my hair and pulling me back when I walk.
My kids close their eyes, spread their arms and fly with it, until they fall to the ground laughing.

My kids say, "Hi God! Thanks for my toys and friends and stuff.
Please keep the bad dreams away tonight. Sorry, I don't want to

Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back
and realize they were the big things.
I wish you Big Mud Puddles and Sunny Yellow Dandelions!!!!
