It seems like the laughter at Gus Birdwell Elementary just ended. Summer is now officially past.
822 is so close to the playground I can hear it from my backyard...but today...the laughter will be different
Grace was born in Hansford Hospital and I think I might have been the only patient besides her...it seemed like we were in a spa...except for the ouchie part
But, when Charles was born, I was in a very large hospital on the maternity floor and he was one of 5 baby boys born that day
when they would wheel those hungry little boys down the hall
I promise you...I could hear his little cry over all the rest as he came my way
Today and this year...the laughter at Gus Birdwell Elementary will be different...
because mixed in with all those precious little voices will be a voice...the one giggle...that I will be able to hear above all the others...
as I listen to the laughter on the playground
