Their Treasures

I sit and listen to their stories.
They take me by the arm to show me their rooms.
One is filled with her soccer trophies and closet has been rearranged.
The little one shows me her art work, one her very best friend made.
Her favorite stuffed animal that her papa gave her (grandfather).
She plays the piano for me and then quickly wants to show me her
clay creations.
They are good and I hold one and she asks if I want it?  I shake my head yes and
now it sits in my kitchen window.
Looks like a little heart in the center to me.

Oh this reminds me of the times I used to spend with my little grandchildren. They're all grown up now and I don't see many of them anymore, but now and then a call comes that makes me happy.

Thank you for your comments today.

It's special that she wanted you to have a piece of her art, and you have the perfect place to showcase her heart.

The clay art is very creative--I see the heart too. The blue glass things you have keep taking my eye--I so love cobalt blue glass of any kind. Such a nice time you had.
