BLESSING OF THE GRANDS

BLESSING OF THE GRANDS

A Poem by poetdoug
"

A poem to include each of our five grandchildren that range from age 13 down to age one year old. They are a Rainbow of Blessings

"
Dear Lord, I have a small request
 At this special season of the year;
  You know I love My Favorite Grands
   And hold my grandchildren so dear.

First, there's fair-haired Avaree Rose
 With her sweet southern charm and grace;
  She illuminates every single room
   As her love-light lights each place.

Next, there's Brennan Alan, another 'fav'
 Who never, ever knows defeat---
  No matter the weather or challenge
  This 'Sharpie" lands solid upon his feet!

Then comes along my Marlie Beth Rose
 With her dancing, dazzling blue eyes;
 Her smile awakens the morning sun
   Taking it by complete surprise.

Another Grand 'fav' is Baylor Augustine
 Our little 'Mover/Shaker' for sure!
  Give him an inch and he'll take a mile
    Oozing with pure pizzazz and allure.

Finally, my namesake Jackson Raymond
 My, Oh my--what a handsome guy!
  Just hand him a hammer or soccer ball
   There's nothing he won't seriously try.

"Now which one is your  FAVORITE?"
  Ask nosy neighbors who come to call--
   My Favorite Grand is---God's Favorite
     He equally loves them one and all!

Thank you for Blessing all my Grands!
Amen.

What a lovely way to describe your grandchildren. It's not easy to sum up their characters in just a stanza and I applaud you for that. :)

Wonderful ! Nothing like the Love we bear our children, and our children's children. You, sir, are a special Soul. Your Family and Grandchildren are blessed to have you in their precious lives.

Beautiful photo and a amazing story. Kids give us reasons to laugh and smile. Halloween is my favorite. I like to see the kids have fun and enjoy the Halloween holiday. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
