When I was young I loved Shel Silverstein books. In fact I still do. Chris was reading "Where the Sidewalk Ends" last night and I thought I would share one of my favorite poems from the book. If you listen to the words, really listen, you will learn a wonderful lesson to pass along to your children. I hope this may become a family favorite of yours as well.
Listen to the Mustn'ts
Listen to Mustn'ts, child, listen to the Don'ts. Listen to the Shouldn'ts, the Impossibles, the Won'ts. Listen to the Never Haves, then listen close to me. Anything can happen, child, Anything can be.
