A Rainy Day with the Grandkids

A rainy day spent with the grandkids Beats the sunniest day on a cruise. You can never explain Just how much you can gain Without seeming to over-enthuse. It’s a joy I feel privileged to sample, Knowing others don’t share in my luck But if you can relate You know there’s no debate That it’s much more than gold we have struck. As they grow there are brand-new horizons While we witness their minds stretch and thrive, So we soak up the bliss Never quick to dismiss How their lives help our spirits revive.

There is no better balm, remedy or medicine than a day spent with grandchildren. I am so glad you get to see yours.

Aye, so many now choose not to have offspring (my son for example), but seeing the light of understanding in a child's eyes is a sight no one should miss! Aloha! Rico
