Jenny’s prompt today, combined with my night last night, have led me to post someone else’s words for my contribution to Saturday Centus. My family surprised me with birthday gifts last night, although it is not yet my birthday. Jenny’s prompt is “It’s only words. And words are all I have”. Thanks for hosting, Jenny.
Can’t get a better gift than that!
Two of my granddaughters handed me the gift. The eight year-old shouted, “Gigi, read my card first”! I read it aloud.
“We gave you lites,
because you shine as brite as a star
in every place you are
You’re my Gigi,
that’s what you are, a star!”
Tears filled my eyes, as I hugged her, and said “it’s beautiful.” She said, “I wrote it all by myself, so I could give you something just from me.” I knew she was really saying, “It’s only words. And words are all I have”. I explained that she couldn’t have given me a better gift.
