A poem to live by and carry in my heart

A Careful Woman
A careful woman I ought to be:
A little girl follows me;
I do not dare to go a stray
For fear she’ll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape her eyes;
What’re she sees me do,
she tries
Like me, she says,
she ’s going to be,
The little girl who follows me.
She thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine;
The bad in me she must not see,
The little girl who follows me.
I must remember as I go,
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
I am building for the years to be,
For a little girl follows me

There is a beautiful blog that I like to visit every week. It's a breath of fresh air for me. A place where I can go and read words that are comforting and reminders of who I am as a mom, wife and woman.
I love this poem and I shall print it and frame it. It's a great reminder for me to be the best mom that I can be for them, to breathe, don't sweat the small stuff and make sure to laugh with them everyday.
