A Bear-y New Year


Pardon me while I slip into my new role

as Grandmother.  When I ran errands today,

some decorations remained from the holidays.

I just couldn’t resist the colors and bears.


Running through my head were stories

beginning with Once Upon a Time…

Fanciful thoughts raced through my

mind as well as visions of poetry.


New parents and their offspring are

filled with hope as they turn pages

of a brand-new book.  What began

as a less than successful first bath


experience evolved to the baby

so comfortable, she fell asleep

during the bath.  Ah yes, we all

had those days.  She is thriving.

    Liebe Mary Ann,
    die Geburt Deiner Enkeltochter war eine der schönsten Nachrichten zum vergangenen Weihnachtsfest für uns. Mit der Geburt von Isabella Rose wird ein weiteres Kapitel in Deiner Familiengeschichte aufgeschlagen. Sicher wirst Du ausgiebig von ihrer Entwicklung in deinem Blog berichten. Deiner Tochter und Dir wünsche ich große Freude beim Aufwachsen von Isabella.
    Alles Liebe und Gute wünscht Dir
    Dein Arno

    • Lieber Arno,
      ein herzliches Dankeschön für Deinen rührenden Kommentar. Sehr geschätzt. Unsere Enkelin Isabella Rose erfreut uns bereits mit ihrem Wachstum. Sie blüht auf und ist ein sehr schönes kleines Mädchen. Ich glaube, du feierst um diese Zeit einen Geburtstag? Jubiläum auch? Viele glückliche Rückkehrer. Ich hoffe, 2023 findet Euch glücklich und gesund. Beste Wünsche
      Deine Mary Ann
