Sounds of Childhood

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: A Tribute to Moms

Sounds of Childhood

Peanut butter faces, handprints on the wall.

I see them running through the house, playing with a ball.

All the sounds of childhood, fill my home with lovely noise.

But someday they’ll grow up, move on,

and have their own little girls and boys.

So for now I will enjoy the ones that God has given me.

I will count my blessings every day.

For I am blessed indeed!
