One of Gracie's favorites....

My daughter Grace and I laid in bed Saturday morning reading poetry. The book is well worn as it's one of my favorites too. She read me one of her favorite poems. She is seven and very wise. Enjoy........

HUG O' War

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

"Shel Silverstein"

Good advice for us all! Happy Sunday and may your blessings be many.....
