Poetry. From grit to sparkle.
smiles...makes me think of kids...seeing them the first time...or anytime...they are often enough to get me going...smiles.
It is so amazing seeing them for the first time, isn't it? This was written for my eldest son and for the light he brought to my life during some very dark days.
Lovely poem. Our kids are a blessing- no doubt about that :-)
Jennifer, such beautiful sentiments. I hope you will show your son this poem! Smiles.
they work magic don't they... not easily getting out of bed speaks of a difficult time to me and the wonder of a kid's smile making it easier and life, worth living..wonderfully penned

I think we love the birth of our poems,even the ugly ones. Especially that moment of conception.

Aw really touching!
Heartwarming, so beautiful.
Thank you Laurie...hope things are working out with the bullying issue you have been dealing with...
Love this ! :)
Thank you! :)
Just lovely. I think of sometimes I was very sick with my kids (I was basically a single mother) and living in NYC had to walk them to school! Hard! (Worth it!) k.
We do what we have to do, right? I was a single mother for a while too...hard at times...thanks for sharing a little bit of your story k, you rock!
I thought of my son when I read this. The vulnerability in this is moving and beautiful. Excellent piece. :)
Thanks Heather, your words mean so much.
Mothering, parenting, has taught me the most important lessons and allowed me to choose to evolve. I could not more agree with your sentiment; and you shared is so succinctly, so beautifully.
And I couldn't agree more with your words...motherhood has been the same for me. Thank so much for your kind thoughts Kim.
Simply said but very touching and felt. :)
Sometimes less is more...at least I hoped so with this write. Thanks Ravenblack....btw, cool name :)
