Joys That Float the Boat

The eyes of Madeleine – eight months old and glittering like the sun

The smile of Benjamin – innocent, uninhibited

The wiry gymnastic moves of Sophie – sure and unmistakable

The strength of Annabelle in everything she does

The beautiful wide-eyed trust of Cristian – looking to me for love

The confidence of Michael – playing with his favourite toy as only he can

The stomping steps and intelligence of Naomi – who acts beyond her years.

These young folk represent the next generation of our family.

We are very lucky

To have such joys in our lives

To keep our boat afloat.
