September Makes Me Sentimental

Children never really leave us, they simply walk away.
Our title never changes, just the duties we relay.
In the age of innocence, we tangibly  can show
Our love and our devotion, and help them as they grow.
But each and every summer they leave us bit by bit,
And as the summer turns to fall the air feels bitter sweet.

 I pray I will not live my life with backward glance,
But ever facing forward, with hope and second chance.
Learning as I trust Him, as His grace is here to stay
In the giving, breathing, smiling, shaking heart tugs
We get stronger every day.        

starting in the bottom left...our oldest Brittany Nicole...she is 20,and engaged!!
(oooops, yes next summer will be the big day!)

next my favorite son:) Alexander Dustin, he is 15.

then we have Jasmine Chloe...she is 13 now!

above her is Katrina Brooke...she's 18.
last we have Sommer Jade, she is 10! and a really fun ending to our story.

wow, suddenly I feel old:) actually I feel so blessed to be a mother. It is really the best and most daunting career. It may come with sacrifice but what worth having doesn't carry sacrifice?

Blessings to you tonight...I thought it was time to share a little more of my family with you.

They are the fabric of my heart and I love them dearly.


  1. I love your children's names. They are beautiful. I feel the same way. It is hard to see them grow and leave but I've been sayin " they never leave us but just move away ". Mine are 23,21,19,17. So I'm ther with you. Ox

  2. Lucy,

    What a lovely poem; that very first line made my heart skip a beat, as Libby has taken that walk but her presence is so firmly set in my heart. I won't say it's easy; it's not. Your children are so very sweet and I'm sure, just as considerate and loving as their mother!


  3. Beautiful family Lucy!
    What a quiver you have!
    And September finds me sentimental too...but I love it.
    Happy day sweet friend!

    All my heart,
    Deborah xoxoox

  4. Great to meet your children! I can't believe you have a 20 year old! You hardly look more than 20 yourself!

  5. Such a beautiful poem and a beautiful family!


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
