Hugs a Plenty

Someone needs a hug

if you look real close

wearing a smile upside down

in need of a big love dose

Revealing a long wide frown

it just might be you

to brighten their day

and bring their spirits around

They might be too shy

to ask you face to face

so it’s up to you

to offer with grace

Share some warmth

the cost is nil

but the gift is big

in a simple embrace

I’m not sure if the kitty was happy,
but I know my son was thrilled
(15 years ago)
and he was definitely sharing
a warm embrace~  🙂

Wishing you all a Wonderful Wednesday!

 

Blue Eyes

I had to re-post for my son, too,
from 10.17.11~

I watch you
as you play
a simple toy
a swing or slide
a shovel in the sand
all big adventures
I take your hand
as we walk
a subtle breeze
blows your
light brown hair
not a summer day
but a warm day
in winter
Your smile is brighter
than sunshine
My days are bright
with Blue Eyes

This was written when my son was just a little guy.
The photo was scanned, so it’s not the best
and  his blue eyes aren’t noticeable,
but he has them like his daddy!
(He’s 6’1″ and almost 17 now)

Tiny Hands

Thinking of Mother’s Day early,
I’m re-posting this from 11.12.11~

I am little, not tall at all
I can do more than crawl
I’m eager to touch all I see
I can almost pat your knee
I give you a hug and a kiss

I see you’re in pure bliss

I give you a warm smile

I can tell it’s worthwhile

I giggle (music to your ears)

I see you laugh and I see tears

I like when you call me “small fry”

I know I’m loved even when I cry

I’m irresistible to your heart

I’m like a tiny work of art

I make you melt when in your arms

I hold your love with all my charms

I’m cuddly like a teddy bear

I know nothing can compare

I know you love each other

I know your love made me

I’m just thankful we’re together
I’m happy you’re my family

ROCKING THROUGH LIFE – Haiku

This cute little rocking chair
was made by my Mom’s Father in June 1926.
My Mom is still living and turned 90 this year!
She rocked in it and so did my sisters and I,
their children and my children.
This photo is of my son taken 13 years ago.
We still have the rocker and it brings back precious memories~

A special rocker

made from Grandpa’s hands with love

Generational
