This photo should show you the kind of daring this gal has. It's her first sky dive. She also applied to be on Survivor.... She's got balls....


 

MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, SHELLY
 
Our branch of the King family
was the smallest of the tree.
But, our branch began to grow
when Kevin married Shelly.
 
First they bought a house in Louisville,
it was their brand new digs.
Then our branch of the tree
sprouted two more twigs.
 
They had two little baby girls
and before they even started school,
they decided to move to Florida,
cause they were nobody’s fool.
 
So their house went on the market,
sold in just a few short weeks.
They even made a small profit
much like everybody seeks.
 
Then they bought a house in Florida
located near a great big park.
Now they have lots of cats,
but their dog, Izzy, no longer barks.
 
They’re happy, so it seems
and so are those little babies.
Well, they’re not babies anymore,
they’ve turned into little ladies.
 
They’re being brought up proper,
being allowed to spread their wings.
One’s a burgeoning cheerleader
and the other acts and sings.

Their mom is exposing them to choices,
things like soccer, music and dance.
You’ll never know where their talents lead
if you don’t give different things a chance.
 
She’s a really talented lady,
of whom I’m really proud.
I think the world of her,
she’d stand out in any crowd.
 
She’s a pretty special person
and she’s motivated to succeed.
Has she improved our family bloodline?
I’d say she has indeed.

I'm guessing she's the first in your family to fly, so to speak. I'm pretty sure that was you right across there taking that photo. No? I can only assume that was you. Probably wouldn't be me. Patrick

What a wonderful gift to give to your daughter-in-law. How wonderful it must have been to receive such a gift as well. A poem that will touch her heart each time she reads it.

Thank you for sharing your love and admiration for your daughter-in-law. Good poem, great sentiment...

She'll be thrilled to read this as it comes from your heart and shows how much you love her and the big babies almost all grown up.

Aw, this is truly sweet Richard! I think she'll love it!
Best Wishes,
