MY PRECIOUS MOM, ME AND BABY BROTHER TOMMY

Tommy who was being baptized in the spring
he was born in May
he was the last of us 5 kids.
He was very small with a curl on his head
he had a mark on his face
that was red.
It went away
at an early age.
He does not have to this day.
Tommy was baptized at St Rita’s
down the street–
I had my hair pulled back in a ponytail
very neat.
My mom is young
with reddish auburn hair
my brother John is beside us
with a blank stare.
I remember the day faintly
which is a flash in time
it was a memorable day
in my young life.

Mommy and Suzy with Doll by Suzae Chevalier

Suzy is happy that mommy is near
she all holds her and her doll so dear.
Suzy is wearing her favorite red shoes
Suzy dances in them to her favorite tune.
In the city of Cottage Grove is were they were
Suzy memories with her doll when she was a girl
are etched in her mind with her mommy too
this photo was taken before Suzy went to school.

GIVE A HUG INSTEAD OF BUY A GUN

kidshugging

GIVE A HUG INSTEAD OF BUY A GUN

A hug is more powerful than a gun

It makes receiver HAPPIER

No harm done.

We need to focus with deliberate

Intent-

What we want our nation to look like

How our money is spent.

Is it spent on guns or is it spent

On fun?

People see no gun crime

They all use their inner divine.

No honking at cars, shootings and

or road rage-

Instead Everyone smiles with a wave.
For WE have found a better way

By imagining a brighter image

Of the people of the US of A.

WE don’t need to build a wall

For in the end

it will FALL.

We need to build Bridges

And help UNITE

All the Races with a smile not a fight.

In The Form Of A Dove by Suzae Chevalier

dove2

In my car driving toward
Highway 95 today-
A dove flew passed
my car window
Flying swiftly-
turning back my way–
I knew this is your father
Who wants me to relay-
“Dear Marlena and Renee
I am with you everyday
In the form of a dove-
I send you my love-
Down to you both
from the heavens above.
Remember One dove
That one dove you do see–
is me your father
who loves you deeply.”

Big Suzy Doll Surprise by Suzae Chevalier

As a kid I made a fake ‘me’ doll
she was like me- short and small.
I sewed her up with bathroom towels
she was original and had no jowls.
Practical joke I did make-
with Funny Doll that was fake.
I put fake doll in my bed
covered the blankets over her head.
Then when my sibling went to sleep
I told her from far away
I was sleeping ‘Please don’t make a peep? ‘
My brother said, ‘Are you alright?
you look very sick looking tonight.’
I replied, with a yell, ha! Ha!
Then I ran to room laughing like hell.
My brothre got scared, and then he laughed
It was very funny, it was a blast.
These funny childhood memories are the ones that last!

Suzy’s 3rd Birthday in Golden Valley by Suzae Chevalier

Suzys_3rd_Birthday

Suzy at her 3rd Birthday in Golden Valley, Minnesota

One candle to grow on

was on the cake–

little Suzy could only anticipate

to blow out the candle’s and

celebrate!

Making my wish for another cute doll

I would dress her up and have a ball.

Soon all dolls would be in a row-

later in the city of Cottage Grove.

For I would only stay on Sunnyridge Lane-

till the end of May.

Children Are Like Butterflies


Children are like butterflies

that morph before your eyes

They can be molded–

but please sympathize.

Please treat children like

the precious beings they are-

let them take flight

and be a shining star.

Keep them smiling

even at age ten-

Make sure you really

listen to them-

and be their friend.

Children are geniuses

that can help the world

so encourage every boy and girl

that you meet to be the best they can be

for they are like the butterflies

colorful to show us how to be free.

Grandma Kay’s 95th Birthday by Suzae Chevalier

Grandma Kay just turned ninety five,
on her birthday in 2009.
In her nursing home her family was there,
Watching her blew out birthday candle without a care.
She was the star of her birthday show,
She blew out a candle that sparkled and glowed.
Friends and family sang along,
to her personalized birthday song.
Her son Russ played the guitar,
this was her best birthday by far.
She unwrapped presents from family and friends,
she was very happy like a child again.
Photo memories are snapped in time,
To remember Kay’s 95th Birthday that shined.
