I rarely use the word "charmed."
I am, however, charmed, graced, blessed.
The sparkly eyes of my sweet boys,
The squeaky sound of small voices,
Laughter from the bedroom at bedtime,
A ten year old super helper,
A five year old, so willing,
My boys: may they be charmed
as they are so very charming.
I am charmed by apple blossoms,
And lilacs, and flowers, and herbs.
I catch a whiff while walking
that makes me stop, and breathe.
I am charmed, always making it.
Money is tight, yet always enough.
We eat well, have a home.
We pray together and sing rounds.
Life is not easy, but charmed.
We have faith, and it works.
