Wrestling with the Kids

Wrestling with the Kids
The Gift of Family #5

When the kids were young, you wrestled
Each night when you came home
Their squeals and laughs resounded
At the heart of family love

Now they’ve grown a little older
The wrestling happens still
Though changed in form and substance
To shape character and will

In the home you have provided
There refuge can be found
And in you, loving father
When your family gathers ‘round
