"Hey, look up there, up in the sky, an angel's floating by
With pretty puffy wings ‘n’ curly puffy hair, oh my!
I hope someday God gives us pretty wings so we can fly
And bounce around on puffy clouds all day up in the sky!

(That would be wonderful, Nicole!)

You should have seen my friend today, oh boy, did he look cool!
He wore a leather jacket, boots and shades today to school
I think he really likes me 'cause he sat close to my stool
Then said, “when it gets hot again, come to my swimming pool!”

(Watch over, Lord, my sweet Nicole!)

My tummy’s hungry, needs a snack, can we stop by the store?
Can I get chocolate pretzels, chips, and maybe one thing more?
I’ll do my homework really good, right down here on the floor;
See all these stars? My teacher said good work is what they’re for!

(My shining star, you are, Nicole!)

She said to study good tonight, tomorrow is our test;
My homework’s done; can I watch ‘toons’? They are the funniest;
I’m not a baby, don’t take naps, but maybe I’ll just rest
And wait for Mommy to get here…oh, Mom Mom, you’re the best.....
...zzzzzzzzzzz"

(I love you too! Sweet dreams, Nicole!)

I loved this Denise and the glimse into your life.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Denise ...
Are we just 'puffed' up with pride
and this intelligent grandchild, or what?
LUCKY YOU !
I don't have any of those YET !
Something to look forward to for sure.
Really delighted by this one.

Denise: Your grand-daughter sounds adorable..

HUGS

Very very nice poem enjoyed it.
Thanks Denise

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Indeed they are, Nan! And one of the benefits of being home right now is that I get to spend more time with them!   Thanks for reading and commenting, Nan!
