The Quartet

A little boy is made of
his mother’s love and dreams,
embodiment of the future
fulfilling Daddy’s schemes.

A mother’s heart will melt and run
at wonder in his eyes
when he first espies a rainbow
or bright star in the skies.

Can Mother’s heart contain the love
or Dad’s such intense pride
as must be theirs when their four sons
are lined up side by side?

Though sometimes it is hard to pray
amidst unending noise,
they know God hears their gratitude
for their loved little boys.

    Yes, a son and grandsons lighten up the mother and grandmother's heart..Enjoyed your work..Thanks for stopping by my blog..What happened to Karter is a very rare thing so the doctor said..The doctor at Emory just tied him down in a sheet, numbed up the place, removed it and then cauterized it..In a few minutes it was over..Of course, Karter was very unhappy about the situation..He was still crying when Phyllis called us to let us know he was okay..Sara

    Joyce, The doctor at Emory said it was probably caused by a bug bite and an abnormal reaction by his body to that bite....Sara
