The 7x7x7x7 Writing Prompt

When Corinne from Everyday Gyaan suggested this creative exercise (details below), and when I saw it on Deepa's blog ,  I was tempted to join her!  Here's how the prompt works.

Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf. Open it up to Page 7. Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page. Begin a poem that begins with that sentence and limit it in length to 7 lines. 

The 7th Book on a bookshelf in the my bookshelf is John Grisham's "The Confession" and the 7th sentence on the 7th page is "Happily married to Dana for ten years"
Happily married to Dana for ten years now
Father of 2 kids growing up so fast
Leaves me tender and mellow in the heart
Forces me to behave in my good samaritian ways
Makes me want to care and share
So that they can look behind
To remember a wonderful Dad!

Thanks for joining the prompt! We all need to be mindful of our behaviour around kids, don't we?
