Sons and Daughter

I was struggling with some things in September 2012, but it was a joy to have both sons and my daughter-in-law at home on Friday and Saturday and some of Sunday. I was blessed by their presence.


         Loving My Sons

I rejoiced this week,
Even as I was stressed by family concerns
away from home,
As sons and daughter came home to
Care and be cared for.
The laughter lifted me.
The simple meals shared at one table strengthened me.
The times simply together restored my joy.
I was blessed this week
By sons and a daughter now at home.
