(For my granddaughter, Nicole Lynn)

A smile bright beams from your face
As tiny fingers work each lace
You scream with glee I tied my shoes!
Im filled with awe, begin to muse.

Will lifes each challenge be thus met
With courage firm and not much fret;
Will wonderment eer fill your soul;
What lies ahead for you, Nicole?

This is my heartfelt hope, my prayer
May troubles sore not be your care;
May childs dreams for you come true;
A kindly lot is wished for you.

Let innocence and you neer part;
Find loveliness in evry heart;
Seek beauty in each passing face;
Greet each new dawn filled with His grace.

When grandkids of your very own
Cause muse so gentle to be sown
Long years ahead when Im not there
Recall my love and Mom-Moms prayer.

As tiny fingers work each lace
A smile breaks across my face.

sincerely,
a sad tomato

Your 'grandma' heart shines so brightly in this.
It's so good to see it here.

Sweet and so nice, you have done well Denise


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