    These Treasured Years

    Once I thought

    When our children are grown—

    Educated, married, and left our home—

    Then I will feel old.

    I did not: I felt a sense of accomplishment!

    Once I thought

    When we are grandparents—

    Watching grandchildren grow tall and learn of Thee—

    Then I will feel old.

    I do not: I feel proud!

    Now, as I share these treasured years

    With my dear and faithful husband—

    Do I feel old?

    I do not: I feel grateful!
