I was able to view the page but it is written in Spanish and I am desperately looking for positive list of words for encouragement for my (3) small children.  Any information you can give is most welcome.  Thank You!

RE:           Images  of  Yourselves   --    What  you  know  you  are.

 

                    By your actions, those actions that you do every day and that truly come from your heart, those actions that you perform as a result of  your very best thinking and your love, you tell me exactly what you know you are.    You do appreciate your very best qualities, because they are enormously appreciated by others, by your entire family, and by me.   Here they are!    And I hope every day you proudly write, next to these, your wonderful qualities, the actions you do that continue to make you what you know you are.    That is all that really matters:  What YOU KNOW YOU ARE!
