Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

These Eyes

These eyes

What did they see?

In their life before a family, I don't doubt they saw terrible things.

These eyes

Did they fear that one person who came to him each day?

Did he look on in hunger as the food was taken away?

These eyes

Did they wonder where the people went?

Did they worry for the child who cried next to him?

These eyes

What do they know? 

What memories do they hold?

Sometimes I am thankful they cannot tell me.
