Sunday Scribblings " Happy Endings"

Water color pencils on a small flat canvas!

Sunday Scribblings " Happy Endings"
Last night a dear friend and I joined our other friend,
her daughter and grandchildren for fish and chips on the beach.
We enjoyed watching these sweet little ones interact
with such kindness towards each other!
Best friends for life!
Mother and childen
Grandmother and grandson!
Grandma and granddaughter
A petite dancing Rose Fairy
Grandma and grandson, a very old soul!
I just want to break out singing Lennon song Beautiful Boy
when I see this sparkly eyed boy!

Tender little man adores his Glamma!
Three generations, mother, grandchildren, my friend the grandmother!

Unexpected Treasures

They came unexpected, fifteen months apart
Forcing a young woman to make a brand new start
Tumultuous fathers, unable to commit
She took her broken heart, grieved a little bit

The Babies needed her to put her angst aside
So in a box she packed their life, took it all in stride
Found a cozy place to live, to raise children who are kind
Enrolled herself in school to cultivate her mind

Future deliberations, a job, own a car and home
Ammunition to squash the odds, and thrive out on her own
It’s been a year now, the kids are smiles and joy
A darling petite fairy and a soulful little boy

A mother with her children can flourish beyond thought
The innate power of motherhood is a mystery never taught
Though she may find loneliness knocking late at night
Enthusiasm for her offspring fills her with delight

Ambling carefree the promenade knowing mom is near
Past few years of oblivion, become obviously clear

Gifted treasures in her midst have helped her heart to heal
Closeness she’s honed with them has made happy endings real!

Stories of strong women are wonderful and are indeed happy endings! How lucky this mother is to have two beautiful children, and how lucky the children are to have her. :)

Wow what a beautiful poem. I so remember those days when my girls were small. I can feel your emotions, the bittersweetness of it all; but in the end there is so much joy and triumph. Keep up the good love. And never forget that no thing or nothing is worth your children's happy spirit. But from your blog - I know you never will! Thanks for sharing - Peace, Light and Love, CordieB.

You have fun and lovely way with words. Not only is the rhyming wonderful but the story unfolds so simply with great clarity.
