What would Mr. Rogers say? ​

May 2, 2021 life

As I learn to be a better friend
to the child within me,
I might ask myself
(when I am at a loss
for words of comfort)
“What would Mr. Rogers say?”

And I would say
(as he might say):
“It’s OK to feel sad;
It’s OK to be afraid.

You are enough,
and you are lovable,
exactly as you are!”
