A Creed & A Keepsake


By Honey Good. I came across this poem and as the holidays are approaching I immediately thought this would be a meaningful keepsake present for a mother or grandmother to gift their child or grandchild. The poem can be framed for a desk or hug on the wall. Remember: it is not what we buy our children or grandchildren. It is the messages we leave them with and the values we instill.

A Creed To Live By -Nancy Sims

Don’t underestimate your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at time, you will live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you top trying.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.


I think this is a lifetime keepsake. The words will pertain to them no matter their age. It’s timeless.

Warmly, Honey
