I Choose You


I choose you
Even if you don't choose me.
I love you
When you don't love yourself.
I have hope
When you have given up.
I will be strong
When you feel so weak.
I will have courage
When you are afraid.
I will feel your pain with you
When it is too great to bear by yourself.
I will stay calm
When you are falling apart.
I will show you loving eyes
When your eyes are filled with hate.
I will give you gentle touch
When you want to get away.
I will understand
When no one else does.
You can love.
You can trust.
You can feel safe.
I will believe
until you believe it yourself.
love,
Mom (Brenda)

Awwww, I love it! Can I use it? My son LOVES The Little Engine that Could. He knows right where it is at the library and he checks it out all the time, walks right up to it. When we put it in the return box he can't figure out why it's not on the shelf right then.

You all are free to use anything you find on my site unless it is copy righted by someone else. In those cases I generally just put a link to their work, since I can't copy it either!

Loved this - thanks! Just FYI Brenda, I'm taking my boys for a Neurofeedback assessment tomorrow. We're planning to do Neurofeedback at home through Hope 139. www.hope139.com I'm not sure if it's something you've ever considered for your RADishes?? Just something else we're trying. Keep blogging, Brenda! You're such an inspiration to me. God bless!
