Three things I want my kids to...

Through Corey's blog I found out about Mamablogga's group writing project for June. I have never participated before. But hey, the prize is an gift certificate. How could I not compete?

Here's the rules, quoting from Mamablogga's website:

The theme for the June Group Writing Project is “Three things I want my kids to . . .” You can finish that infinitive with whatever verb you like (do, say, be, wear, have, get away with), and add any qualifiers you like (today, this summer, before they drive me crazy).

Here's my entry:

I want my kids to:

1- Be compassionate and forgiving. May their hearts never be poisoned by hate.

2- Never lose the sense of wonder. To be alive, to walk this earth is such a wonderful blessing, no matter how hard it may be sometimes. I hope they keep the ability to be amazed by the simplest things.

3- Live with no regrets. Life is a journey of self-discovery, and sometimes we learn more about ourselves from our mistakes and bad moments than we do from our triumphs.


  1. I love your list--especially #1. I keep thinking that the world is getting past that, and then I keep getting rudely corrected. :(

    Thanks for your entry!

  2. Great list! I love #1 a lot. Forgiveness will take them far. Also I love the idea of wonderment. I will be thinking on that one :)

  3. Thank you for checking out my blog and thank you for your comments.

  4. I'm glad I wrote mine before I started reading. It would be so much harder to settle on a topic and then on three, and only three, items. Wonderment is my favorite on your list; wonder keeps the world fresh for me.

  5. I agree, a great list. I think too many people are poisoned by hate and never get over it.
