I am grateful for

grandchildren

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful.

One moment you’re just a mother.
The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.
~Pam Brown

childhood friends

The things which the child loves
remain in the domain of the heart until old age.
The most beautiful thing in life
is that our souls remain
over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves.

–          Kahlil Gibran

children

The child must know that he is a miracle.,
that since the beginning of the world
there hasn’t been,
and until the end of the world
there will not be
,
another child like him.

– Pablo Casals


siblings

Our brothers and sisters are there with us
from the dawn of our personal stories
to the inevitable dusk.

– Susan Scarf Merrell

my husband

Dear God,
I prayed, all unafraid
(as we’re inclined to do),
I do not need a handsome man
but let him be like You;
I do not need one big and strong
nor yet so very tall,
nor need he be some genius,
or wealthy, Lord, at all;
but let his head be high,
dear God,
and let his eye be clear,
his shoulders straight,
whate’er his state,
whate’er his earthly sphere;
and let his face have character,
a ruggedness of soul,
and let his whole life show,
dear God,
a singleness of goal;
then when he comes
(as he will come)
with quiet eyes aglow,
I’ll understand that he’s the man
I prayed for long ago.
– Ruth Bell Graham
