Sunshine comes in many forms.
-  -  -  -  -  -
That which come up in the morning
and goes down at night.
And little girls who
are Grandma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
She rises in the morning
sometimes cloudy,
sometimes bright,
but always Grandma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sometimes she rains tears
torrential they may pour
but comforted by the voice
of the One who loves her so.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sometimes she shines bright
the warmth of hugs and smiles.
Love overflowing in the heart,
it’s all Grandma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Love is forever and always
whether its stormy or bright.
Love covers all situations
For all is Grandma’s De-light.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Sunshine’s  Eyes and Smiles
Light up the world around her.
Creating more smiles in their eyes
when first they did find her
-  -  -  -  -  -
When Grandma’s day is gloomy
Sunshine arrives with much to say
with happy stories, hugs and smiles
to brighten up the cloudiest day.
-  -  -  -  -  -
When Sunshine goes to bed
it usually can be said
Sunshine’s eyes cease to gleam
when energy’s gone, time to dream.
-  -  -  -  -  -
Eyes close and all is well
in Sunshine Land I do tell.
Grandma’s De-light in peaceful sleep
The day is over, it will keep.
-  -  -  -  -  -
She is after all
Grandma’s Sunshine.

    The other day the two were in the kitchen and I heard Gma say “don’t touch that . Don’t even look at it.”
    Then came a small voice “I am looking at it.” Gma missed hearing the last part. We had a good laugh hours later.

    As usual you bring love and happiness together. My sunshine is going on 18 and though she is mom’s De light she is still leaving the nest way to soon. Thanks for sharing
