were introduced to a whole new world of love; Grand-parenthood.
Happy Birthday Grand-sonny!
oh, what a joyful three years it has been!
(Brantley has overcome his fear of blue icing 😊)
(third Birthday pics will wait till tomorrow.
they are recovering today from a 2:50 a.m. arrival home
from the other grandparents in Nova Scotia
after multiple delayed/rebooked flights!)
Love, what strange familiar angles
Tries the keeper of its prize
Wrangling from tender heart-tangles
Happiness cut down to size
Love, what lessons stun the creature
In the thick of its regale
As we learn to trust the Teacher
Of a law that does not fail
Love, what pleasure fills its laughter
Love, what pain its sorrow braves
Love, life’s bitter-sweetest After
In the echoes it engraves
Love, a little glimpse of heaven
On this stricken sweep of sod
Love, like a gift always given
Let's us glimpse its Giver, God
