She handed you a child today
Who is an extension of her
She prayed you'd know how important
Of a little person is he

He is loved and he is read to
He is honest, trusting and true
And his eyes are wide with wonder
As his path comes to cross with you

Just like a little piece of clay
He is building his foundation
And she watched as you took her child
Your care earned her admiration

Thanks for knowing the important
Of the moments, hours, and days
Gentle guidance that fosters trust
Potential that grows out of praise

Today's world often will smother
The enthusiasm this child knows
She's so happy you are someone
Who can encourage seeds to grow

And you'll always be a part of
This little child you've helped to grow
Thanks not just for facts you brought his way
But for teaching with your soul.
