Warm, sunny
Raining, lightning, thundering
Splendid showers clean the earth

On this beautiful day
As the children go out to play
I bow my head to pray—

That into the near future
They will see a joyful picture
And not be fallen by a lure.

From up above they will be blessed
Given peace, strength; and not be stressed
As life becomes fully dressed.

On this beautiful day
I bow my head to pray—
As my children went out to play.

Life is Full of Surprises-3 (Three Parts)

I like to surprise MY CHILDREN; like when I—
Brought out the face paint
Took them to the swimming pool
Had taken them for a fast food meal
Brought them to the mall
Took them to the fair
Threw a birthday party with balloons
Spent hours at an amusement park
Treated them with ice cream cone
Told them how special they are
Took them for a pony ride
And the list goes on and on……

Life is Full of Surprises-2 (Three Parts)

I like to surprise MY LADY; like when I
Purchased tickets to see a movie
Planned a romantic vacation
Placed a thank you note in the kitchen
Worked out, built muscles, lost weight
Cooked supper on the grill
Had enjoyed a date we’d never forget!
Sent her flowers at her work
Watched the sun set, followed by romance
Text her to say “I LOVE YOU”
Went for a long cruise in the car!
 And the list goes on and on……

Life is Full of Surprises-1 (Three Parts)

I like to surprise my MAN; like when I—
Purchased tickets to a great concert
Planned a last minute trip
Placed a note in his lunch
Had a photo shoot of myself to gift him
Made his favorite pie/dessert/brownie
Had a wonderful date we’d never forget!
Met him at his work
Enjoyed drinks/cocktails together, followed by romance
Sent an e-mail telling him he’s special to me
Dressed beautiful and especially for him!
 And the list goes on and on…….
