LOVE

I decided to put this on here - as some of you know I frequent Creative Nachos for the Thrusday Sweet Treat - every week, the very creative wonderful sunny & supportive Natasha gives us a theme to create whatever our little hearts desire and this weeks theme is love. Of couse, my collage of my family that I did for lasts weeks theme would have been perfect, but already used - I had another idea - but it's been a crazy hectice week, and it just didn't get done. Wed evening I was sitting at the bus stop and I was thinking about my grandson - and the words just came.





"Love Ocean"


A little bluish with a tinge of grey
discolored his light chocolaty skin
with a mass of thick black hair, wet & unruly

Breathe,

Breathe,

Baby,

P l e a s e

Breathe,
Minutes turn into eternity

Finally

A breath,
A cry,
Relief

Of course his eyes are a deep brown
with long thick eyelashes
features of his father
yet so much like his mother

I felt him reach inside
my chest and grab a hold
of my heart.

My grandsons name means ocean - so I chose that as part of the title.
The large background picture is my grandson at 6mos ( I think), going clockwise from the top, 10mos with his mom - my daughter, 3 yrs, 4, 5, & 10.  He is now 11 1/2.  He is one of the sweetest, kindest, loving souls I have ever had the pleasure to meet.  He's also a bit of a trickster, and he has given me many many smiles, laughter, gentleness & love when I have hurt so bad I could hardly stand to be touched.  He has massaged my back with his small hands, the love and care from them did me more good than the very light "massage", he has figured out ways for us to play together when I could barely move, but still be comfortable.  He makes up games within  a game, cleans off the coffee table so I can sit on the couch while we  play with legos, he calls me from 400 miles away to help him with his homework, sometimes I think just so he can talk to me,  and spent 3 hours on the phone with me Christmas day when I wasn't able to get there for Christmas this past year.  I love being able to play with him, the play is not just for him!  He is love.

And no, you may not squeeze his cheeks! :) I know,  they are so tempting!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day.
