"It is a token of health and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Our Newest Addition
She rocks another baby...
hums an age-old lullaby.
She hopes no one is watching
as with thanks, she starts to cry
Remembering the time
when the babies were her own,
And her mother told her gently
too soon they would be grown.
Lots of bedtime stories,
skinned knees, and tears to dry,
Teddy bears, toy trucks and dolls
and kites up in the sky.
First days of school, first loves, first cars,
the proms, the wedding days,
Sand castles and snowball fights
and teaching them to pray.
Now, as she holds her grandchild
and gives thanks unto the Lord,
She knows to be a grandma
is motherhood's reward!
Our little Grandson, Bryce Phillip Holland has brought us so much joy!! We are so happy to welcome him to our family, such a joy!! I posted this poem when my Granddaughter was born, and I had to post again!! It says exactly how I feel, what a wonderful reward for a Mother.......to become a Grandmother!!
We are blessed!!
