On The Road

Traveling Many Miles From Home

Car Loaded


There is Hardly Room For One

New College Year Beginning

Excitement of Not a Dormitory

But First Home Shared With Friends

Seemed the Best Part Shared

Oh, Grandma the Kitchen is so Big

She Loves to Cook

Vegetarian all the Way

So Safe Traveling Wishes Go with You

My Special Daughter

Safe Travel Wishes sent Ahead

Coming and Going on the Road

To see Your Daughter and My Granddaughter

In New Surroundings

Settled, Safe and Secure

With Another Exciting Music Filled Year Ahead

My Heart Smiles at the Musical Talent

That has been Bestowed

On This Child of Ours

World Wide Symphonie's here She Comes!

Good Morning Ernestine, I know you are excited for your granddaughter and college. I was so sad when my girls went away to college. Left me with an empty nest for the first time. Your son is beautiful as are all your children and grandchildren.

Tabor said...

Such a tenderness you have for your (grand)children. One is heading out and another coming in!

Judy and Tabor, thank you.

Beverly said...

you say you just write your thoughts and it sounds so easy...
I find the words meaningful, you say so much with these words, all your love, pride, and joy shines through.

The W.O.W. factor! said...

These words are beautiful. I felt like I was a part of your life reading them. Simply put with so much feeling!

Mim said...

Such emotion I felt as I read your words. And the post about your son.

My oldest granddaughter, 18, is going off to college this week as well. We are excited for her but will miss her terribly, and are even a bit worried about her being 200 miles from home. But she is following her dream/passion, and we are very proud of her.

Your sentiments are sweet and lovely and loving. Very poetic as well.

Have a nice evening.


I'm finally starting to catch up with my visiting, and hopefully will have time for a new post this week.
