Number Five

     I have a new grandchild. This makes number five. We have waited a long time for this little guy to arrive.

A Grandmother’s Prayer

God bless those tiny fingers
Bless those tickle toes
Bless the head that slumbers
And bless that nubbin nose.

God bless the hands that nurture
And bless the arms that hold
The bundle of this nursling
Safe in our hearts enfold.
