There is so much chatter going on these days. Everybody's speaking but who is really talking?

You may not realize there is a difference between chatting, speaking, and talking. When our children speak do we listen? Speaking can be defined as uttering words or articulating sounds. Speaking can also mean to express thoughts, opinions, or feelings orally.

I would like to share a letter that my daughter gave to me when she was 7 years old. She had been speaking to me about how she felt everytime I would go to work.

The letter reads as follows:

Dear Mommy:

I love you with all my heart. I will never stop loving you as long as I live. When I grow up, I will always remeber how good of a mother you are. You have come of your job just to be with your children, and that really tuchies my heart. You are the best mommy in the hole world. Your are always there for me. Mommy you show a lot of examble, and some day I will be more like you. I will be very smart because you and daddy did your best to bring up my education. And some day you will be greatly rewarded.

I received this wonderful letter with all the mis-spelled words when I made the ultimate decision to become a stay-at-home mom. Little did I know, the content of this letter would be significant for my life today. The letter was actually typed 17 years ago by my daughter. It still tuchies my heart today. Not only because she became exactly what the letter indicated she would, but I did as well.

With all the chatter that's going on today, if your child was to grade your ability to hear, what grade would you receive?

You will never know unless you learn to listen. A letter to Mom from the heart of a child. What is your child speaking that you may need to hear???
