Fully Their Own

Laundry can wait for morning.

Sleet bouncing on the rooftop is for pajamas,

yawning, soft music, letting legos in their piles

be uniquely organized floor ornaments.

I gather another brownie,

a second cup of coffee, my breath in one large motion

before curling up beside the space heater,

snug in a crocheted blanket.

Dark comes early, whispering, “Slow down, listen,

look up and see the children grow

a little more amazing

every minute.”

I stare so long each one asks, “Mom, what?”

I smile, just barely remembering we once shared a body,

then lightning-aware that these children

are fully their own.

#MidnightMadness – 5/13/2017

This was one of four bands I saw perform tonight, and I have to say they were my favorite.  Believe it or not, they are siblings!  Such great talent all in one family. Check them out!

Do you have a favorite book?  If so, tell me what it is and why it’s your favorite.

One of my favorite books is, God’s Smuggler by, Brother Andrew.  I love this book because it shows how anyone, even the least likely person, can be used by God to do amazing and extraordinary things.   Read it for yourself if you don’t believe me.  😉

Certain people…

Isn’t it funny how certain people

Seem to make time stand still

There are just those certain persons

Who can give us quite a thrill

And it’s only every so often

That we meet such a friend

And the boundaries of their love for us

Seem to have no beginning or end

We just sort of mesh

In an amazing kind of way

There is never a single moment

Without something to do or say

And when you have a friend like this

You can’t help but want them near

Because it’s such a rare thing

To find a person this dear

Your gentle spirit

Makes me smile

You’ve got your own

Unpredictable style

 

You walk to the beat

Of your own drum

I love to listen to you

Sing and hum

 

Like a bird in flight

Your spirit soars

The music you compose

Is completely yours

 

Your artistic skills

Are quite impressive

Through drawing and writing

You’re so very expressive

 

I’m amazed by your talent

And how gifted you really are

You’re my sweet daughter Brianna

My bright shining star!
