The Sounds of Laughter

The sounds of laughter reach me, through the walls.

Seated –I write, it’s what I do,

Never far, from you.

I hear their voices ride the air,

Sealing these memories with devotion, as they share.


Family is everything as we walk through this world

Breaking through the limits of love

And cracking the barriers of distance,

Bringing joy, in a world of sadness.


Togetherness we bequeath, through moments.

Squeezing out the stress and madness.

I sit alone, in this room of mine,

Writing in silence.


The quiet, brings the sounds of laughter closer,

Swirling them into the voice, of our family.

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!
