Afternoons with Miss Betty

Afternoons with Miss Betty

These are our adventures living our lives intertwined together. This is the story of our days, our times, and our love for each other. Even though time keeps marching on and will continue long after we are gone, this is the time we have been granted. My life is better because Miss Betty is in it, and her life is better because I am in hers. This is our story of how we laughed, cried, had family and friends, and had each other.

Moral Stories and Poetry for Children


Chef Andre
Once there was a boy named Andre who wondered what he might be when he grew up.
His dad was an accountant. He asked Andre, “Do you like working with numbers?” But he did not.
His mom was an interior designer. She asked, “Andre, would you like designing interior spaces for homes and offices?” But he did not.
He often spent time with his grandma and helped her in the kitchen, and he asked her what he might be.
His kind and gentle grandma said, “Andre, you’ll be what you are meant to be. Now, hand me that towel and let’s finish up this fresh pasta.”


Swindling Steve
Swindling Steve—he makes my blood boil!
He’s like a rattlesnake in the
desert, wrapped in a coil.
Ready to strike and cause pain with his words.
Oohhh! That guy gets on my nerves.
His words are poison, and they’re meant to hurt.
I want to rub his face in a pile of dirt.
Better yet, manure. Let him have a taste.
Just smother it all over his smug, little face.
My parents tell me I shouldn’t think that way.
But they don’t have to deal with
him every single day.


Amazing Me
Has anyone ever told you how great you are?
How you shine so bright like the brightest star?
You’re so unique, there are none like you.
So, with all this greatness, what will you do?
As for me, I let my imagination soar.
Every day is an adventure, a new world to explore!
One day I’m an astronaut, deep in outer space,
Searching for new worlds to discover a new place.
