In Seventeen Years


For My Precious Ashley

in seventeen years
lots of laughter, love and tears

beautiful bundle, meek and mild
darling angelic child

99 and 44 one hundredths percent pure
a blessing from God, that's for sure

yes, she's plucked my heart strings
almost time to stretch her wings

safe within God's protective care
she knows He's always there

one of His amazing treasures
to be her mother, such a pleasure

1 Timothy 4:12
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
