August 12th………“GRANDPA, IS THERE A FAMILY PHOTO COLLECTION THAT WAS STARTED BY OUR GREAT GRANDMA CLARICE BACK IN THE EARLY DAYS? WHERE WAS IT KEPT”?
POEM – “I’m Coming Home To Hug You, Mom”!! created by N. Elliott Noorlun. September 30th, 2015. Since moving to Hawaii, in 2010, every spring it was our tradition to fly home for my mother’s birthday on March 30th. While we were home, it was also a joyous tradition to pull out the shoebox of family photos and reminisce about our early days in Minnesota and northern Iowa. This poem is based on those sweet times of sharing. Mom’s been Home in Heaven now since 2017, but I still love looking over our family photos and remembering those joys of yesteryear!! ><> 😉
I’m coming home to hug you, Mom!
Dear one who gave me the gift of life!
For now’s the time to show you’re loved,
I’ll announce it gladly with drum and fife!
Let’s sit and dig, Through the old shoebox,
Of family photos so sweet!
Filled with memories, Of days gone by,
As we snuggled near your feet.
While you read us Bible stories,
That pointed us to God,
So I’m coming home to hug you, Mom!
For your life I here do laud! 😉
