Hush little baby,
Don’t say a word.
Momma’s gonna buy you a mocking bird.
But if that mocking bird don’t sing,
Momma’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring don’t shine,
Momma’s gonna buy you a fishing line.
‘Cuz they say if you
Give a man a fish,
He’ll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish,
He’ll eat for a lifetime.
My goal for you is not to give you everything,
But to teach you each day
So your heart will sing.
* A big thank you to my sons’ teachers–Ms. Ashburn, Mrs. Michelle, and Mrs. Jovanna–plus all the others I don’t know–librarians, computer teachers, PE teachers, counselors, lab students, principals, and anyone else I missed. I am excited for all that the year has in store, and I pray that God helps you to make this year a success as you continue to bless the lives of my children.
