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."

Ever since Toys ‘R’ Us filed for bankruptcy last year,  kids of all ages have felt the hole in their hearts. But thankfully, we’ve been given seriously surprising and exciting news that the iconic store plans to re-open as a pop-chain for the holidays!
Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in America has announced that they would be opening nearly 600 Geoffrey’s Toy Box pop-up stores across the nation.  They’ve released a full list of where the Toy Box locations will be, and along with Kroger locations, the pop-up shop will also be found in Smith’s, Ralph’s and Fred Meyer stores.

If there is no Toy Box location nearby to you, then fear not – both Target and Walmart have said that they will also be expanding their store sections during the holidays to fill the empty space without Toys ‘R’ Us.
