Remember, you are perfect in my eyes, you are not flawed. Your scars, the colour of your eyes, your hair, your skin, is what makes you who you are. Look at my fruit; each one similar and yet of many different wonderful varieties. You are my fruit! You are beautiful! You are special!
When a child is pulled away by their curiosity, encourage them, let them explore safely. Plan time for this in your day. It will remind you of who you were once, and how beautiful and exciting the world can be. Watch them as they learn with joy. Teach them right from wrong, to love and not hate; to be ever happily curious about life and all the treasures it holds.
When your elder walks slower, or takes longer to explain something, be patient. Give them time. They have earned it with their years of living. When they tell you a story, listen, for they are the history keepers of the world. They have a knowledge of life that cannot always be found in your books. They have life lessons to teach and pass on. Cherish them as I do, for you will not have them always.
I have much more to say to you my children but that is for another day. Until then, know this – I love you, you are special, you are my children. Be kind and loving and patient with one another.
