The Girl I Used to Be

She came tonight as I sat alone,
The girl I used to be.
And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
And questioned reproachfully,
"Have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes that I had for you?"
"The great career, the splendid fame,
All the wonderful things to do?"
"Where is the mansion of stately height
With all of its gardens rare?"
"The silken robes that I dreamed for you
And the jewels in your hair?"
And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me ...
This slender girl that I used to be.
So gently rising, I took her hand,
And guided her up the stairs
Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
So innocent, sweet, and fair.
I told her that these are my only gems,
And Precious they are to me;
That silken robe is my Motherhood
Of costly simplicity.
And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know,
Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
For the dear ones who come and go.
And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
She smiled through her tears at me;
And I saw the woman I am now ...
Pleased I'm the girl I used to be.

"My Baby Boy!"
My baby boy, he brings so much joy
chubby cheeks and chin, and a really great
grin All of God's grace, in his cute little face
Even tho' I pray, little he won't stay
Please don't grow so fast, let these cherished moments last
Cars, balls and boats, soon he'll make them float
Outgrowing all his toys, My Cherished Baby Boy!

Life is sweeter if it's spent

"Big Brother!"
Mommy had a baby,
what does that make me?
A Big Brother for all to see!
Cute, little baby so tiny and sweet,
being a Big Brother, is really neat.
There's a lot of things I can do,
I know mommy needs me to
be a Big Boy and help her out
that's what being a Big Brother...
is all about!
