Yes, I smiled
when at breakfast this morning
with their favorite French Toast
my youngest granddaughter looked at me and said
"grandma, what is good about being old?"
Peace came out of my mouth
along with contentment...
with not the greatest childhood,
young marriage, house full of children,
divorce, striking out on her own,
new careers and finally in a cottage by the woods
surrounded by nature - is at Peace.
Peace and contentment
seemed a long time arriving
but it is wonderful.
Just wish some health issues were not surfacing
but it sure could be worse.
this makes me smile
and my precious
grandma thanks you for asking
and reminding me
how special is this time of life....
