My daughter Avery loves to read, write, play, and have fun as only little girls can at the age of 7 and three quarters. She is growing up so fast and is quickly getting a view on life that makes Courtney and I very thankful. She wrote the following passage on May 20th, 2016 and it makes us so proud on how she is growing up. She was very excited that she filled up the front and back of a notebook page. Enjoy the read and forward it on!!!
In life everyone makes a mistake. Even adults do. If you hurt someones feelings you can take back what you said but you cannot take back the way you made someone feel. In life always be kind, nice, generous, helpful, and thoughtful. Never be greedy or selfish. Think of others. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Mistakes help you learn. No one is perfect. Life would be boring if people were perfect. Before telling on someone talk to them. Things do not always go our way and that is OK. It’s OK to tell people how you feel. If your playing and you see someone sitting or standing alone invite them to play with you. Always include people because if you don’t they might not include you.
Life isn’t always fair. If you see someone doing something wrong tell them that they can’t do it. If they don’t listen then tell an adult. Don’t tell on people just to get them in trouble. Don’t talk about stuff like birthday parties in front of people that are not going. Don’t be a bully. People will be bullies in life and do mean stuff but never do mean stuff back. Tell a parent or teacher. Don’t brag about stuff or people won’t want to play with you, sit by you, or talk to you. Never interrupt unless it’s something super important. This is all stuff that can happen in life but just roll with it. THE END…
Thanks for sharing Avery and we look forward to future posts!!!
