Touching The Future
I don't wear power suits,make speeches,or drive
a fancy sports car.
I've never talked on a car phone,made a big sale,
or been elected to the Senate.
I don't "do lunch",have a big impressive office
or carry a beeper.
I spend my days wiping away tears,giving hugs,
and serving chicken nuggets.
A good day is when I go through a whole day without a temper tantrum,
bite mark or a toilet training accident.
My "office" is a room full of brightly colored toys and laughing children.
You may not think that what I do is very important
and you may even whisper behind my back
"What a waste of a good mind."
But I know better.
I make a difference because I'm changing the world one child at a time.
Everyday I'm getting the once in a lifetime chance to touch the future.
I'm proud to say "I'm a child care provider".
