On Children

Pin It

A family member shared this with her daughter on her birthday, and I thought it was so beautiful.  I’m admittedly not normally into poetry unless it’s something written by Winnie the Pooh, but this is really inspirational.

On Children
Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, 
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, 
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, 
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

Decorative Magnetic Boards

I’ve been wanting a large decorative magnetic board to hang above my desk in my craft room, so I’ve been experimenting by using different types of frames, trying out different colors and playing with different types of surfaces such as chalkboards and burlap.

As with most of my crafts, this one has gotten out of hand, but something good has come of it – I opened up an Etsy store, which I’ve always wanted to do – just to check it out and try something new!

So far I’ve made magnetic chalkboards, magnetic burlap message boards, and magnetic print boards. Check out Chloe Belle by Texas Farmer’s Daughter >
