I stood rather speechless
the best I could muster, I confess,
was heartfelt hugs to them -
a family of treasures akin to a crowned gem.
Here I sit - after 8 hours of conferencing
and letting my heart go bursting,
with pride, wonder, and awe
at each of my children I saw.
I have finally allowed myself to
go through an entire box of tissue,
and allow myself to cry, I did -
and I cried a lot, I do not kid.
For with my heart so full and moved
and my runny nose slightly improved,
I finally found a word or two -
to, with all my heart, say thank you!
|To some of the kindest and most caring humans I know - Thank you!|
