Her Only Request...

Brantley (grandson) is a very social boy...
though he may give you a pretty serious look when he first meets you😐
This morning he was not interested in playing by himself
so while I did a little tidying he played with a new friend who did everything he did!

(oh, this reminds me; I think I have a mirror that needs polishing!)

Oh, what privileged place of esteem
Oh, what a beautiful war
Caught in the cross-fire twixt Duty and Dream
Learning to love more and more

This is the role of a mother and wife
Not much reward does she ask
But lingering moments to savor the life
With those at the heart of each task
