Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought

In honor of my late father, I recently sponsored a poetry contest. Entries were to include a reference to a grandparent or grandchild.

Rita Goodgame's poem below won first place. Enjoy!

GIFTS OF JOY
by Rita Goodgame

 Our Amy who is six years young
has joined a softball team.
We saw her hit her first home run
and watched her bright eyes gleam.

 Here are some cookies Granny made
to share with rookie friends
and while the game has been delayed
we’re rooting for some wins.

 God bless these gifts of special joy
that make old hearts feel young,
next week our grandson soccer boy
will share his day of fun.

 And so dear friends we hope that you
enjoy each blessed day
your grandchild learns from you, to do
fine chores .... sweet prayers ....hard play.

Have a great week,
Mary
