Slice of Life Tuesday: Impromptu Visit


Slice of Life Small LogoImpromptu Visit

My daughter called just to say,

“Hey, Mom. How was your day?”

It was nice to hear her voice,

then I got the better choice…

A surprise, a visit, she came over!

I looked outside for the four-leaf clover!

We ate and talked and shared our day;

she listened to me read the way…

I will tomorrow during read aloud time.

She gave me a compliment about story, rhyme,

and voice.

If I had a choice…

She’d still be here.

But I know that’s not true, because I see,

she’s turning into the woman I wished her to be.

I let her go, then wrote this post and said,

“Goodnight” to the rest of the family. Time for bed!

  1. It’s a treasure hard to measure when your family comes to call.
    I’m glad you wrote and told this tale, good night, sleep well, that’s all! (lovely, Jennifer)

  2. So wonderful when they come home and share a bit of who they were and who they are becoming.

  3. Such a nice surprise visit from your daughter. I have been thinking about how quickly my own daughter is growing up lately so it’s easy to relate.

  4. What a lovely surprise! I love visits like these.
