A friend of mine posted this on facebook and after reading it, I felt that all adults should read this and think about the kids all around them who are just kids...not the smartest, most talented, gifted, best at (insert thing here), prettiest, etc etc etc. Sometimes our kids are just that ....kids. We need to tell them that their best is good enough and that all the awards and accolades in the world won't make them a better, smarter person. Who they are is just who they are meant to be. The world is a much better place with them in it and how they treat others and what is in their heart is more important than anything.
