 Happiness flowed like an endless river
 About to burst over  muddy banks
 The smile shone like the twinkling stars
 Lighting up the heaven's adorning lights
 The eyes sparkled like precious jewels
 Big, bright, beaming like moonlight
 streaming from the heavens.
 A tickle of laughter, pure, refreshing
 Drifting in and out of the moments
 Like the ebb and flow of water
 The joy of the moment, entrenched,
 for the memories that are yet to come.

    I hope you enjoy your free time coming up, Phyllis. I will be off for Idaho, not too far away, but going to see my nephew perform in a muscial Saturday. I think Joe can go too with me and Angie in our car. My mom and sister are going to be there, all the way from Iowa. Just for one day!! But probably I will be away from Soup two or three days. Luv, Andrea
