I'M HAPPY, HAPPY, H-A-P-P-Y!!!!

Elizabeth Stone said that having a child is momentous as it means "forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body". I have experienced this very wise quote to be true with all three of my own children and even more with my grandchild.


I LOVE BABIES!

I love the smell of them...
freshly bathed
or freshly soiled

I love the feel of them...
softly peaceful

or rigidly indignant

I love the sound of them...
murmuring gently

or venting ear splittingly

I love the look of them...
angelically sleeping

or angrily demanding

Most of all what crumbles my heart
is their absolute honesty
their total trust
their utter dependency
without expectations of gain.

(Here ends being mature and calm and sensible!)

.....AND WE WILL HAVE ONE OF THOSE IN THE FAMILY AGAIN EARLY IN THE NEW YEAR! YEAH! (Jump, jump, dance, dance, scream!).

My son and daughter-in-law are pregnant after making us wait for almost two years! How will I survive the next couple of months until he/she or they arrive? I cannot wait!
