Grandchildren

A granddaughter is a joy
a real genuine treasure,
to make the heart sing
with unequaled pleasure.

Her smile can brighten
the gloomiest afternoon.
In her sweet presence
my heart becomes immune

to trouble or sorrow,
defeat or decline.
In her, so clearly,
we see God's design.    

A grandson fills the gap
and completes God's plan.
In his face, I catch 
a  glimpse of the man.

His smile brings sunshine,
love defines his embrace.
My load becomes lighter,
worry's gone without a trace.

He will always hold
a large chunk of my heart.
No force can alter our
bond, it's off the chart.

Hi Cona: It's a blessing and a chore in equal measure and it's unique to converse with innocence.

Thank you, Anne-Lise. I am a grandmother of four also. Actually, ten, if you count step, adopted and step great grands. Wow! I wrote about it in "Elastic Families." Only three of the ten are girls, but the girls are special, aren't they? We feel a need to protect them. Perhaps because we were once girls ourselves. Love your picture. So o o o Cute!
