Happy 2nd Birthday Jaeger!

Our nephew tunes 2 today! I adore those big brown peepers! What a blessing this little man is, he always has a big smile for you and loves everyone. I can't believe 2 years has passed so quickly in one sense but has really drug on in another. Happy Birthday Jaggy we love you.

Children Learn What They Live

If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame,
He learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
He learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns confidence.
If a child live with praise,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
He learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
He learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance
and friendship,
He learns to find love in the world.
