What a great way to start off a new year! I hope you take time to watch it, the link is at the bottom of this post, but here are the words!
Grateful my friend sent this to me, words I really needed to hear and be reminded of!
Good Night dear friends!
Interview with God!

I dreamed I had an interview with God.
"so you would like to interview me?" God asked
"If you have time." I said
"my time is eternity."
"what questions do you have in mind for me?"
"what surprises for you most about humankind?"
they rush to grow up
and then long ti children again."
"That they lose their health to
make money and then lose their
money to restore their health"
"That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future."
"That they live as if they will never die,
and die and see if they had never lived."
I asked "as a parent, what are some life's lessons you want your children to learn?"
God smiled and said "to learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others."
"to learn they cannot make anyone love them."
What they can do is let themselves be loved."
"to learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least."
"to learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love,
And it takes many years to heal them."
"to learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness"
"to learn that their persons who love them dearly,
But simply do not know how to express our show their feelings."
"to learn that to people and look at the same thing and see it differently."
"to learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others.
But that they must forgive themselves."
Thank you for your time I humbly said, "is there anything else you would like children to know?"
"to learn that I am here."
