If I Had My Child to Raise Over Again
By Diane Loomans
If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd finger-paint more, and point the fingers less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and know to care more.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.
I'd teach less about the love of power, And more about the power of love.
May you find peace and happiness at the end of the day....
P.S. Having technical difficulties :(

Hi, My name is Alma Bosek. I live in Southern California with my loving my husband and kids. Writing has always been my passion. I can recall being a writer as early as eight years old. I speak two languages and can understand three. Let me explain. My parent's first language is Tarasco, a language spoken by Indigenous Mexican people that are from the state of Michoacan. Spanish was a second language for my folks and I. My folks wanted my life to be more American, so they did not allow me to speak Tarasco. Tarasco was spoken so frequently that I learned to understand key phrases and directions. This is why I only speak two languages. My unique upbringing has given me an advantage on family, fashion, food and travel. If that isn't enough my household is filled with American/Euro traditions and food. All of it translates into a wonderful life. Follow us on the blog as I share great family moments.
