Behold The Moment

                                   Behold The Moment

                         Behold the moment,the future is here.
                         Our family is getting bigger every year.

                               The new child has arrived ,
                                    already loved by all.
                          Hold this special baby close to you,to
                              rock away the fears and kiss away
                                               the tears.

                        Take in every moment ,to share in the joy.
                               Let me shout from the hill tops so 
                      everyone knows, our new child has all ten toes.

                         As the years go by and each one grows,
                        There is a new experince to be had by all.
                      A play ,a big game or off to college they'll go.

                          As we let go and they are on their own.   
                              Never fret they'll soon be home.

                         Down the road ,each child will enlarge  the 
                               family with families of their own.

                                 Anne Rutherford

    Hello Anne, thank you so much for your nice comments. Sitting here in southern minnesota tonight hoping the storm doesn't cause any damage. Kind of hard to think about anything else at the moment. Your poem is such a nice affirmation of the good in life. Gotta love little baby's. May God's peace be with you. :)

    Howdy Anne,,,,u have been in my tho'ts often...just asked Jon how u were yesterday...What makes me think u are doing better is that u have 2 postings up...I hope that is little bit of a barometer. Grief will someday be replaced with joy...and when the Lord gives us joy, it is incomprehensible. That will be my prayer for u this day. Hugging u real tight! Gwendolen
