Guest Blogger: My Mom

(Dec. 7, 2005)

2005 was a year full of blessings
Like ironing wrinkles through several pressings.
We have a new neice
Expanding our clan.
Elspeth arrived in February's élan.

Then Konrad arrived in mid-June--
Swelling numbers;
They both have been noted for
Ubiquitous slumbers.

Our friends have survived
The disasters from storms

While our new home has kept us first cool
And now warm.

It's a lovely old place
With two huge gracious trees
And a deck in the back
To catch a fresh breeze.

Please note new address
And also phone number.
We've spiffied the place with fresh paint and new lumber.

Indian Summer is here-
So warm, birds are singing;
To you thoughts are winging

Thanksgiving is over
We're grateful and fasting.
And now turn our thoughts to life everlasting.

Have a Happy New Year 2006;
Add some joy and some peace
Into the mix
Stir gently until
Any woe you can fix.

Peace, Judith

I told mom that this greeting was great. It reminds me of the creativity she once expressed through the guitar. We love you mom.

Yep, that's what I thought.
