Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

Starbucks is bringing us two brand new Frappucino flavors that are a major blast from the past; Cotton Candy and Bubblegum Frappucinos.  Yep, it couldn’t possibly be any more nostalgic.  It brings us right back to the days of asking our dad for some change for the gumball machine, and of the county fair where we would eat endless amounts of cotton candy…

 

There’s a catch though, just like all good things. These special drinks are only available in Mexico, but it’s seriously worth the trip. With just one sip, you’ll be taken back to your childhood glory days.

 

It’s a limited edition treat, and looks super light and fluffy, just like the Ultra Caramel and Triple Mocha Frappucino’s do.  When it comes to food and drinks, it appears as though 2018 is the year for nostalgia, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
