Heart-to-Heart with Diane

Hello and Welcome! Isn't raising a family the greatest!? I know I've got the best job in the world, just being Mom! I love sharing things I've discovered that make being "Mom" better, easier or more fulfilling, and that is what this blog is all about. Welcome!

Kind at Home

My granddaughter Rebekah


Kind at Home

I'd like for folks to say of me,
No matter where I roam,
"That child is nice and gentle—but
She's sweeter far at home.

"Her temper never does she lose,
She's patient as can be
She always strives to spread content,
Among the family.

"She always tidies up her room;
And like a gentle maid,
She strives in countless little ways
To be of some real aid.

"She welcomes, with a friendly smile,
The neighbors as they come;
She's quite a nice girl anywhere—
But sweeter far at home."

    how sweet, and we often forget to be nice to those close to us sometimes. Kindness should begin at home then you can get along with anyone.
