A Poem from A Sweet Girl!

I love my children.  They each have a specialness about them, each different from the other.  I would like to share with you a bit about my one and only daugther.  She is a joy to me.  She has such a sweetness about her.  She sees a need and does her best to fill it!  In fact that is ahow she lives life~ her best!  I am so grateful for her and to her.  She is an example to me of love, devotion, kindness, strength, determination, will power and Intergity. 
Today this dear daughter of mine came home from school and read me a poem she had written for L.A class. I am not sure if it will come across the same to you as it did to me, not knowing all that she is talking about, but I was amazed at how she captured and expressed her life on the page.  Her insights surprised me and so did the tears this brought to my eyes!  I hope you will enjoy. I know I did!!

Where I’m From
By: Mackenzie Wynder

I am from drawers
    from Old Navy and Stain remover
I am from red everything
      (Dark, light it felt like
      I was surrounded.)
I am from the grass
     the trees
    bright, fresh and damp smelling.

I am from the brown sugar, cinnamon toast and blue eyes
    From Dayna and Shiela and Rae.
I’m from the goal setting and
           hanging out,
from you are beautiful! and I love you!
I’m from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
            and I am a child of God. 

I’m from Alberta and Ontario
       haystacks and tea.  
From the Candy shop my
        brother owned,
The two broken arms of my grandma
when my mom was a baby.

Scrap books in the craft room
          full of pictures,
          me from birth to now
          I will always have the memories to cherish.
I am from purple and pink clothes-
           bright, blue, snowy mountains.

I love this girl!
