Just Something Sweet

I’ve been having a hard time trying to come up with content right now. I feel like my emotions come in waves and I can’t control when the next one will come. I know I’m not alone. All of us, all over the world are dealing with so many different emotions and we just can’t pin point which one we are experiencing.

I had already been dealing with anxiety while I was pregnant, and since the birth of my 5th son, yes 5th, I’ve been bombarded with tons of emotions that make me just shut down. What a time to have had a baby! Yeesh!

Although it’s a crazy time, my family and I have been trying to find the silver lining. We have been spending time together, and learning new skills. One of which has been learning about poems and poetry.

My 9 year old son wrote a few poems for school assignments, and one just caught my heart. I wanted to share it with you all as a small ray of light in such an uncertain sad time.

Our Echo
By Peter Politis, age 9

We have an echo in our house,
An echo two years old,
With dimpled cheeks and big eyes,
And hair of sunny gold.

This little echo, soft and sweet,
Repeats what others say,
And trots around on tireless feet,
Upstairs and down all day.

He wrote this about his younger brother and it just melted my heart. It’s getting framed this weekend and going on my wall for my Mother’s Day gift!
