The kids were reading a poem book by Shel Silverstein…one in particular was a favorite and they shared it with me…so true…so thoughtful…so sweet. God I love my kids….;)

How Many, How Much
How many slams in an old screen door?
Depends on how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
Depends on how thin you cut it.
How much good inside a day?
Depends on how good you live em’.
How much love inside a friend?
Depends on how much you give ’em. 
-Shel Silverstein
