Saturday Centus (Sunday edition)

Best daddy response ever, "I asked my daddy one day, when did you feel all grown-up?"
Smiling he said, "I haven't yet!"


Jenny from "Off on my tangent" is trying something new, on the suggestion from one of us.  Sounds like a blast to me. 

SATURDAY CENTUS

Jenny's rules this week-
You don't have to use the word Father.  You can use Poppa, Dad, Daddy or whatever you call(ed) the Father figure in your own life.
 
The prompt this week:   An acrostic poem as described above

Number of words:  No more than 100 total
Style of writing: Any
Additional Pictures: Any
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
True Story
 
 
Down right sad I was
after spending the morning in
dozens of shops
did I ever guess
you had another little girl in mind?
 
 
Did you know
after our beautiful day together
darn it that I cried myself to sleep?
 
Finally many years later
after I confessed my sadness
that day you said you were shopping for another little girl
Ha! Ha! Jokes on me.
Even now I have to laugh.
Really you were shopping for me!
 
 
Thank goodness for those little lessons we learn along the way life. 
 
 
 
 
I really miss those days.
 
 
 
Thank you for stopping by and for other
Saturday Centus posts
