Coming Home



The news of your coming home
Made me cry a river. And
Just thinking about it,
Makes me warm all over.
There is no better way anybody
Could have put it more appropriately
Than your dad...calling it a miracle.
Indeed, a miracle it was! Hallelujah!
I can imagine (because I am also
A parent) what your mom and dad
Went through all the nine months
You were gone. I can put it in
One word: Hell.
Your coming home
Is Heaven for all of us. Bless you.
Glory be to God and all His angels.
(Your sister, Mary Katherine is one of them.)
Welcome Home, Elizabeth!
