Happiness Is

Happiness is,
her heart feeling like it has been hugged
and grandma cannot quit smiling.

My first grandchild
my first granddaughter
is engaged.

Never have seen a couple so happy.

Grandma may be leaving the woods
next year....

Memories surface of when my Jessica was born,
trips to Memphis to see her, her visits to grandma,
all the special phone calls, cards, notes and pictures she sent to me over the years
and now my family will include this special young man.

My Jess, thank you for personally calling me....
and I agree with your words
"Mathew is a keeper."

Blessings and best wishes to to this young couple
as wedding plans unfold.
