Foundations

Do not fear rock bottom
we build strong foundations
when we know who we are.
If we can master self to know
our life's gifts and talents

we can mine our own genius.

Our life is the substructure
on which the next generation
builds, we are the foundation
from which our children grow
it's a huge task. Love guides

to raise mind, body and spirit.

How we parent each child
can influence not only him,
but everyone he meets, not
for a day or a month or a year,
for eternity. Ripples of storms

or sunshine on future shores?
