Always There



ALWAYS THERE

Done for Take A Word's weekly challenge. This week's theme - "Friendship"
Thanks to Ryan C. Wilks for the poem and Pixabay contributor vargazs for the image of the children.

ALWAYS THERE

 You're always there.
When I am sad, mad
or just having a bad day,
You're always there.
Doesn't matter what mood I'm in,
You're always there.
Thank you very much,
I really appreciate it.
I love the friendship we share
but most of all I love you.
You're always there
The sound of your soothing voice
is like the sound of a chorus of angels
that fill my heart with joy
No matter how far or near,
You're always there
Forever in my heart
you will be for years and years.
Through thick and thin we will stand.
You're always there
We will always be friends forever and ever
You're always there
When it comes down to it,
I will always be there for you
And
You will always be there for me.

Mother Hen And Her Chicks

Mother Hen And Her Chicks

My Great Grandmother Mary Fulluck Healey (center) and her grownup brood of children. 
My Grandfather, George E. Healey is the handsome lad in the upper left corner. 
These photos were taken between 1900 and 1909 in our ancestral home in Epsom, Surrey, England.
Grandpa emigrated to Canada shortly after this picture of him was taken. The rest remained in England to live out their days. Grandpa's choice to emigrate to the Great White North has produced four subsequent generations of Canadians of English heritage.

This piece was done for Take A Words weekly challenge. This week's theme was "Family".
Digi elements by the designers at Mischief Circus and my cherished family photo album.
