As my years continue to grow steadily and rapidly, I find more joy in my life every day. My precious sister, daughter and niece overwhelm me with love and kind acts. They found this nice retirement home for us and we are very happy. These actions inspired the following:

There are sometimes when your cup runs over

It surges right over the brim

There are sometimes when you're not in the clover

That life seems to be so grim

 When these good times come be sure to surrender

Just let them flow over the top

When bad times come you will always remember

These bad times are surely to stop

Our Good Lord promised to not overdo it

From grief He will give us reprieve

So be prepared when the good times they do hit

His promise you then will believe

I'm glad we both stuck around to enjoy these golden days. Granted, some of the days get a little tarnished by pain, but you are right, we are having great times in our new life, enjoying all your new accomplishments. When I read some of your words, I think, "shades of dad!" Both he and mother would be so proud of you. They were always proud of all our successes, large and small. We miss them, don't we? Thanks for adding the picture of your old/younger sister and niece on our postage-stamp back porch. Sis
