God's Greatest Gift

I journey in my mind today
to watch the years fly by,
Where are my little children?

The pictures that tell the story
of how they grew so fast,
Once little boys and girls with little plastic army men, coke caps and dolls to fill their days.

In an instant their world changed forever,
Their journey in life on a new path,
One filled with crayons, finger-paint and giggles.
Finding pleasure in everyday things,
the world looked brand new..

I never thought I could love my children more,
But on the day when they placed my grandchildren in my arms
I swear I did.

I realize what a gift we received.
My child's child,
Amazed as I kiss their soft cheeks.
I will reach for my childs hand,
to offer encouragement and support.

Yesterday's memories tucked away in my heart.
Looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.
Amazed by the love I have for each of them.
A part of my soul they now pass on.


  1. Wow, what a lovely, lovely post.

  2. Ohhhh - how what wonderful adult and grandchildren. When I was a little girl I use to cry when Andy Williams sang a song and the chorus was, "Turn around and she's two, turn around and she's four, turn around and she is a young girl going out of the door." Still gets me. I am trying not to turn around with my grandchildren. Hugs.

  3. Oh my, I cry far too easily these days. You are so good with words. Thank you, I love you so much. Blessings

  4. Meme, you are the BEST!!! I love you so much!!!
