When I was 9
I asked my Mom,
“What should I Be
When I am older?
A doctor, a teacher,
A scientist, a preacher?
There are so many choices, I love…”
I told her.
She smiled, ever knowing…
Took a breath,
Then released…
Her thoughts eased my doubts,
Her words brought me Peace…
Be Kind
Be Curious
Be Grateful
Be Bold.
Be Present.
Be Happy
Be Real.
Grow Old.
Thanks Mom…
Jen
PS. She didn’t really SAY that… She lives it…:)
