Ava and Aubree

To My Granddaughters,

I've traveled paths you've yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And this wisdom of my life
I'm blessed to share with you

Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad

Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try and see the other side

Walk softly when you're angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter's power is immense

Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don't shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold

Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day to day
Take it out when it is needed
And it will help you find your way

Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart

The world is far from perfect
There's conflict and strife
But you can make a difference
By how you live your life

And so I'm blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughters
And I so believe and love you.
