A Poem for Young Parents

Dedicated to Glenn, Gina, Seth and Evan Maskell, of Fenton, Michigan Your lives can truly change a lot When you’re raising little babies So always show much patience Don't say "No!" but rather, “OK, maybe!" It is easy to get sidetracked And forget how you once were A family life has challenges And disruptions can occur So remember to be kind of heart And grateful for all your blessings Continue to love with mutual respect And talk! Don't keep each other guessing Recall the vows of true commitment Honor promises you once made Then your marriage will have the strength And harmony will never fade M. Clary November 19, 2003
