Child of my Child...times two

Child of my child
Heart of my heart.
Your smile bridges
The years between us...
I am young again, discovering
The world through your eyes.
You have the time to listen
and I have the time to spend,
Delighted to gaze at familiar,
Loved features made new in you again.
Through you, I see the future.
Through me, you'll see the past.
In the present, we'll love one another
As long as these moments last.

Hi Marie! My 2 ACEO cards came and I just love them! Thank you so much, again. Your work has the nicest details-loved the mixing bowl on the giggle card (I love the word giggle!) and the baby image on the blue card. You do fine work!!!
Elijah and Charlotte are so adorable-I love Charlotte's little mouth-rosebud is what they used to call that. Maybe they still do.
I love this poem..I'm going to copy it-a perfect Grandmother sentiment.
How are you doing with your Artsy Swap stuff....I'm working on 4 different things at the same time. YIKES!
