Provoke and Ponder: For My Daughter

Joining A is for Akari

“A new Wednesday ritual...some inspirational words to carry you (and me) through the rest of the week.”

I saw this quote in a store and it immeditaely made me think of my daughter.  If she remembers nothing else I teach her, I hope she remembers these words...

"As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down... probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you have never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back."  Author Unknown

  1. That's a great quote! And so true, especially about the blaming a new love for something an old one did. *wince*

    I also like the part about 'the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down...probably will'. I interpret this to mean when you realize your parents are just people. Not perfect, just regular, old people who will make mistakes.
