It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 9, Page 27, Book 12

This Day's Greatest Gift

We can't change the past…
But we can gather up
It's lessons and move on,
Stronger and wiser.

We can't control the future…
But we can send our dreams
Ahead of us
To help prepare the way.

We can live each moment…
Heart and soul,
And cherish this day's
Greatest gift…
The gift of now.

May peace with the past
And faith in the future,
Gently guide you through each
Precious moment of Today

I like the first line that we can't change the past but we can gather up its lessons and move on, stronger and wiser. I would tell the kids that when they made mistakes or did something wrong; learn from it so it doesn't happen again; live is a lot like that, isn't it?

I do love that poem - but do you feel at times the present is the hardest place to live in?
