A WISH FOR YOU MY CHILD  by DONNA DARGIS
 

If there could be only one thing in life for me to teach you, I would teach you to love.

To respect others so that you may find respect in yourself.

To learn the value of giving, so that if ever there comes a time in your life that someone really needs, you will give

To act in a manner that you would wish to be treated

To be proud of yourself.

To laugh and smile as much as you can, in order to help bring joy back into this world.

To have faith in others, to be understanding.

To stand tall in this world and to learn to depend on yourself.

To only take from this earth those things which you really need, so there will be enough for others.

To not only depend on money or material things for your happiness, but to learn to appreciate the people who love you,

The simple beauty that G-d gave you

And to find peace and security within yourself.

To you, my child, I hope I have taught all of these things for they are love.
