So on that beautiful Spring day-
we tried it.
Sitting together on the antique quilt-
in the garden-
making funny sounds to get smiles.
And wondering if the odds are good for
three out of four,
or two out of four.
Or one out of four.
So they smiled anyway and just because-
and hey that's the way it is going to be.
So you whisper a quick secret
and plant a kiss and keep on hugging.
Because it is just too wonderful-
to BE TOGETHER.
Laura with a "Mr. Big" Griffin
of almost three years old,
and the three month old Gordon-
of funny faces.
Jess with eleven month old-
Mr. blue eyes Jack.
Sara with Levi- 14 months
and into his "own thing" these days.
And so we keep on teaching our children,
when we gather together,
talk on the phone,
share life stories,
and build the legacy
for the next generation-
