How to get more #patient with children?Patience, children and little hands Claire Samuel

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But every day I’m growing –
I’ll be grown some day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away.
So here’s a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small.”

May we always remember this. May we learn patience. May we grow as a mother but also as a woman so that children are not guilty when they become adults.
