    (quietly)
    she was transporting wood to this biiiiiig tree
    in her big blue overalls...
    we all wondered and asked
    girl, what you doin?
    she smiled and said
    just wait and see
    she had a suede toolbelt
    with everything she needed
    built the steps first
    then continued to make a house
    in the tree
    one day she gathered us around and said
    this heah spot's for you
    to talk and share and poemize your mind thoughts
    i made a poet tree house
    because we needed a new home
    it's got curtains and steps
    a kitchen and living room
    (that's all i had room for)
    so whenever you're ready
    climb on up...
    there's coffee and tea (hot or cold)
    there's lemonade and cookies
    and if you're more hungry
    bring your own food, otherwise enjoy...
    God has blessed me with this
    so now I'm passing the blessing to you,
    with love.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh WildFlower !!! :love:

    You all are too much ... wow ... am I blessed or what ??!!!!

    This is so sweet. Anyone having the pleasure of being the topic
    of the words that flow from the hearts of so many loving folk ...
    God is Good. This is so precious Gurl !!!!! :) Thank You!!!!

    How's the baby doing??? How are you doing??? You know your
    baby is our first baby ... right? I was thinking of adding a journal
    feature to the forum, where we could each have our own personal
    journals to write in about whatever we want (and others could
    respond if they wanted) and as I consider this again now ... I
    think of our baby's first steps and first words and first solid foods
    and well ... their first everything! :)

    You know we have the picture forum and we really should have
    a picture of our baby in there ... if you're comfortable with that.

    Thank you so much Sis and Congratulations on being our Chosen
    Poet of the Week :toast:

    :heart:
