Change is sometimes hard but welcoming Whitney into our family was easy. This picture is of Whitney and my son, Jim, before their wedding in Cancun, Mexico. I wrote this poem when they first met.
They sit cross-legged on the floor
photo album spread between them
laughter like wind chimes.
The story of our lives before
I know my meatloaf recipe
pungent onions, garlic
bread crumbs, ketchup, and egg.
For the girl something new
brown sugar and sage.
