Join Hands in Prayer for Gabriella

Blog Posted:6/28/2012 12:39:00 AM
Mr. Jiggle
There was a gourd named Mr. Jiggle
All he could do was wiggle
Every time he bounced
He gained an ounce
So every time he jiggled
I giggled

This is a poem by my daughter, Gabriella.  She wrote it in the 5th grade and it still delights my heart to this day!  As I was helping her to the restroom at the hospital last evening she said, “Mom, I was trying to think of words for a poem, but they were too gory.” I paused in a moment of despair and sighed, “Thank you, God. She is just like me!”

Ever had one of those moments of thanksgiving?

Please join me in wishing my daughter a speedy recovery from a very serious infection. She is expecting our very first grandchild on October 31st.  J

Hope she gets better soon! And tell her to write those gory things down - I've found it's better to let them out than keep them in! Plus, it may free up some other un-gory ideas in the process! it's cool that she likes poetry too :)
