Things We Can Learn From KIDS

Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me by Cynthia Copeland Lewis, quoted in MSC Health Action News, Jan./Feb. 1997, p. 7

You can be anything you want to be when you grow up. Nobody can pedal the bike for you. If You wait until you're really sure, you'll never take off your training wheels. Nobody notices when your zipper is up, but everyone notices when your zipper is down. Sometimes you have to take the test before you've finished studying. If you're going to fight, use pillows. Before you trade sandwiches, check between the bread. You have to eat a lot of cereal before you find the free toy. If you want a kitten, start out asking for a horse. You don't have to own a swing to enjoy it. It doesn't matter how fast you're running with the ball if you're going in the wrong direction. Sometimes the biggest apple has the biggest worm. Every castle has a dungeon. A little kiss can make a big difference.
