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."

Now that the holiday season is nearing it’s end,  we can all admit to having overdone it with the Peppermint Bark Oreo’s (in the best way possible).  We’re ready for the next new and exciting thing. Thankfully, Dark Chocolate flavored Oreo’s are about to hit up store shelves…

This new flavor is meant to help us fully embrace the darkness of the long winter months, while still bringing in tons of brightness into our lives! And unlike the Peppermint Bark flavor, these one’s are here to stay.

Unfortunately they won’t be out on time for gift giving season to be shoved into your Oreo loving friend’s stocking, but at least there’s something to look forward to after Christmas too.
