I Thought I Knew Love...

In the middle of life's messy muddle, there it was! a bit of heaven as three beaming boy-faces watched Janet pull the paper from their gift to her.
'It's pretty special' one of them hinted as she first went to place the wrapped gift under the tree and then she knew she couldn't wait 'til Christmas!

It's been a long time since I've added a rolling-pin to my collection.
Yesterday I received a very special addition.
Thank-you from the bottom of my heart:)

I thought I knew love
And reached to pluck its rose
But found, to my dismay, a thorn
Beneath its pretty pose

I thought I knew love
And donned my dancing shoes
But found the ball-room was a road
Of second-third mile dues

I thought I knew love
Then, much to my surprise
It kissed me in the middle of
Life's muddled paradise

  1. It is very special. A wonderful gift, very thoughtful. "Teaching us the richness found in simple things."

    1. Yes. thank-you!
      I am deeply touched by it...the boys saw their babysitter cry for the first time and they got the biggest I-love-you hugs ever!!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
