Sandra, I can't believe I did not review this one. I know I read it earlier before but obviously got distracted. I am so glad I popped in to read it again though and can see why it won first place in the Children's poem contest. Well done! You must be very proud of your boys as they are you. Congratulations. ~DD

I just came upon this and it was too good to simply pass it by. It was most worthy of the win. You are a blessed, gifted, and very lucky mom to have the bond of love with your family. I so envy you.

    Aww, Diane, I'm sorry you are envious, does that mean you don't have that in your life? I know and appreciate how lucky I am, although there were times when I wasn't. My two boys have always been there for me, more so after their dad died. Thank you, my dear friend, for the shiny six stars, and your kind comments. Biggest hugs and much love. Sandra xxxx

Hi Sandra, this is just a wonderful poem about you and your sons. It can't have been easy losing their father when they were young and then raising them the rest of the way on your own. It seems you did well though, two dad's... you must have done something right! You got to be a grandma! :)

Exceptional writing, love and grief going side by side. I also have two sons, and I'm always anxious about not being able to raise them the right way, as this is the most important thing. Can't imagine how hard would it be to manage alone. Well done and best wishes.

Sandra: know that you are an amazing Mom and writer.
You raised two delightful guys that your hubby would be
proud of them as adults. I'm sure that your grandchildren
love your children's books. Happy Father's weekend to you.

A very lovely poem that truly tells a story about your life and love of your two boys. Congratulations on your win. You certainly deserve it.
I enjoyed your poem very much. I have four boys and I know the strength that comes from their love and caring. Well done

    I am sure you are blessed by each one of your four sons, I know I am with my two. I don't know what I'd be like without their love and support. Boys are very protective of their mum, I've discovered, :)) and I wouldn't change them for the world. Thank you so much for this lovely review and for the lovely six stars! You are so kind. :)) Sandra xxx

Oh, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, their dad...and so long ago! It must be so difficult for young lads to shoulder that indescribable loss. Thank God they had you...and you them! Amazing, how despite losses too big to imagine, life marches on. Here they are, your two brave little men, dads now themselves. I agree--as Father's Day approaches, I can feel their Dad looking down and smiling...and giving you a nod as if to say "Job well done!"--Karenina

    I worried about them for a long time, but they came through their loss with remarkable courage. We often talk about those days, especially now they have children, and two are older than they were when they lost their dad. I don't know if it was because they had to grow up without a dad themselves, but to see them with their children, the relationship they all have with each other is amazing, it makes me so very proud to see it. Thank you so much, Karenina, for this lovely review. Warm hugs, my friend. Sandra xx

    I awaken each morning realizing, at 65, I have lived five more years than my mother got to... Both my children are older than I was when each of my parents died..
    I think your love and support...and keeping their father's memory alive has a lot to do with their "Dad" skills!--Karenina

They will be great dads I'm sure and I think it will partly be because their dad is looking down upon them. I'm sure it was hard losing him but I'm glad you kept the kids close to you

Sandra, the passion and pride you exude about your family just brims and overflows in this lovely poem! While I don't necessarily believe what some posit, that without loss you can never know true happiness, or without ugliness you can't know beauty, etc. I do think the happiness born of grief takes on other characteristics, it might widen, or deepen, or both. And that isn't guaranteed- grief can fracture families and friendships. When it doesn't, and people like you and your sons commit even deeper to love and support each other, then the new flavor of happiness manifests. Always colored by the sadness of loss, it is bolstered by wonderful memories of the past, while it anxiously awaits the joy of new memories made. Thanks for sharing and congrats on winning the contest!

    Thank you so much, Chip, for this really kind, lovely review. You are so right, it can pull a family apart, but that was far from the case with my dear sons. They were so young to have lost their dad, and I was really upset for them. They, bless their hearts, were both upset for me. We drew support from each other, although they didn't realise just how much their love meant to me. It's hard to put into words. Thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot. Big hugs, Sandra xx
