Poem from my son

I've had this sitting on my desk for the last few days. It was a school assignment that my 7th grade son did and gave to me.

My Mom

Your face is like the beautiful, wonderful New Zealand.
Your hugs are like the fuzzy warm socks that you absolutely love.
Your favorite feeling is funny and you sure know how to show it and how to use it.

You're sweet as your homemade chocolate milk.
Along with that milk, you're the dark chocolate, sweetening the whole world, not just me.
Your voice is soothing, as if Josh Grobin is singing in the back of my head.

You are the one helping me change my dark world into a wonderful green one like yours.


I loved it. Just like I love him.

That is the sweetest thing ever. If you have a bad day, just pull that out and read it a few times.

Precious thoughts! Fresh and genuine expressions of his love for you. I'm remembering his early days and the joy he brought into your family right from the "GET-GO!" You're all soblessed to have each other.
