Son's & Daughter's are Good Medicine

their presence
big smiles
inside jokes
hearing laughter
retelling stories
brother teases
sister mocks
playful arguing
I observe
this boy
this girl
ying yang
more laughter
picture taking
embarrassed kids
my say
cold weather
warm places
mothers soul
open wide
feeling proud
heart filling
with him
with her
count blessings
moist eyes
pain unnoticed
lovely bliss
life's energy
healing medicine
around them
I'm peaceful
I'm Momma


(I look forward to catching up with you :^)

Your babies are gorgeous. And yes, there is nothing better than being with those children. Everything makes more sense and i feel more alive when my babies (now 18 and 20) are at my side. I am so glad you got to be with them!!

And you can come have cocoa with me anytime and we will watch Chocolat!

Love ya!
