Lovely! And, so many will relate to this.
This is sweet. I can definitely relate. Being a mom and grandmother are such great jobs and important ones too. Great message in these delightful lines.
Very clever. Well done.
A carefully rendered piece, with a consistent rhyme and meter. I may be biased, but this is what I think is true trad poetry.
Nice message too.
Suggested improvements?
Hard to find, although there are one or two lines I'd rethink to make it less awkward. e.g.
"I was a teacher...." rather than "I worked as teacher..." perhaps?
This resonates with my life as well....a delightful and well crafted poem...I love how you worked the end back to the it!! Thanks for sharing.
Great poem! I can relate to this, too, having been a teacher. I love it !
Cute poem.

It seems though that God answered every prayer except the height request and this life was perfect like a 30 minute sitcom.

As many can relate, I cannot, but that goes to show we all have different callings in life.

May God continue to bless your mind with words so your hands can write.
Just beautiful. All of us will be able to relate one day. 'Jesus is the friend that sticks closer than a brother'. (smile)
Congratulations on your 1st place win, Verna!

I especially enjoyed your last line.
This is a lovely poem Verna. Congrats on your 1st place - well-deserved!
