Your Are Special

  You Are Special You are a special young man to me, and came into my life when you were less than three. Big brown eyes, brown hair with a magnificent smile, you melted my heart in a very short while. Soon by God’s loving plan and grace, You became my Great Grandson bringing an even bigger smile to my face. Remember the ice bucket challenge that we decided to do? That bucket of ice water was nearly as big as you, but that didn’t stop you from dumping that water, and I still remember your amazing laughter, Together we have played in my backyard, and I watched you swim in my...

The Train Station

        Tom straightened his tie then put on his hat. Why did he have to make this business trip, he hated that Train Station. He only went there when there was no other choice. Memories began flooding his mind increasing his anxiety.  She told him she would return, but he had waited hours before a policeman took him away.        Elsa put on her hat, coat, and walked to her nightstand.  She carefully took the picture from its frame, looked at the small boy in the photo then gently put it into her purse.  Memories of that day long ago made tears roll down her cheeks.   Why had she fallen ill...

I Love You, Nancy

I Love You, Nancy Nancy, In my bunk at night, I lay, just counting the hours in a day. For soon it will be all over, then nothing but blue skies and green clover. All the long lonely nights of the past will end when we are together at last. I think of you and how your beautiful eyes shine when I look at you and lay it all on the line. My love is for only you, and it’s nice. I wouldn’t change that love for any price. Our love is so wonderful and fulfilling, and will always be, God willing. He has given us something that is beyond compare. He has given us something that only we...
