Oh, My Dear Daughter, Where Did You Go?

Where did you go?
When you were a baby, just sitting up
you would grin and your eyes light up
the blanket would pull
up over your head
where did you go?

Peek a boo!
and there you were
not far from me
you were all of my world.

When you were two
and fast on your feet...... running away,
giggling inside
looking for me from your place to hide
where did you go?

There you were under the bed
clutching your blanket-
reaching to me
do it again! and so we did.

When you were ten
and riding your bike,
big enough now -
I watched you disappear around the corner...
where did you go?

Soon you came with
pride on your face,
yet glad to be home.

Independence grew
and so did you,
friends and activities
sometimes your place at the table was empty.
where did you go?

You returned home
my worry ceased
your smile at ease
and my heart at peace.

Then you grew up-
and walked out the door,
on your own now
less often around
where did you go?

I don't know your day
I don't know your friends
I don't see your smile at
every day's end
where did you go?

I find myself wishing for
peek a boo and tag.

Oh, how I miss my daughter being home and young!  But, I do have my grandchildren!  Thank you, God, for all three of them.

Sarah's Drawing

This is my grandaughter's artistic work ( in her own words).   "A little girl with snot running down her nose!"   LOL  Sarah is so funny, she keeps us all smiling. 


This is near my house today.  There is a snow advisory for our area tonight.  Please pray that we don't have power outages!!   Beautiful, isn't it?


This is my daughter's German Shepherd puppy, Spencer, playing in the snow!  He's adorable and just a big baby doll!

Joyful Noise

My hubby, grandaughter, and I went to see this tonight and it is a great movie!  Dolly is my role model, I want to be and look just like her when I get 70.  Of course, I need lots of nips and tucks, blonde wigs, red lipstick, red nails andddddddddd her money!!  LOL   The music is great and makes you want to get up and move and clap during the movie.  I loved it!!

OH, MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!   Aren't these beautiful?  I would love to have a pair of these!  I think this would make a great Valentine's gift for all of us gals.  Are you listening, guys?  Especially my hubby!!

This is The Moon Out Tonight

A lunar halo is a optical phenomenon that occurs when the moon's light is refracted by tiny ice crystals found in thin, high-altitude clouds.  Isn't it beautiful!!
