If a child

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight. If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy. If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty. If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient. If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence. If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate. If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice. If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith. If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself. If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, He learns to find love in the world.

Was reminded of this poem today. Love it today just as much ... maybe even more ... than I did growing up. My parents have a handmade copy hanging in the house. I remember reading it almost every time I passed it in the hallway. Funny the little things we remember, don'tcha think? ;) Sometimes little things make a big difference.
