very little.

Standard

after a fun afternoon 

and wonderful evening

spent visiting and playing

grandies are tired and tucked in

when suddenly the tears come

missing mom and dad

and after

a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom

everyone settles in for the night

including bunny

 does it get any better than that?

“very little is needed to make a happy life.”
