And that's that. But now love.

Thursday, November 17, 2005

I've decided to stay. Thank you for your words. Blogger friends.
I got a speeding ticket today. Day Dreaming in the rain. I'll write about that tomorrow. But now we all need a little love in the rain and drizzle and grey, don't you think?
I wrote this yesterday for my babe. I love you.

Your baby days
are fleeting.
Hold out your hand;
it slips through my fingers.
The hourglass has turned
I watch the sands of your
smile cascading.

Your baby face,
cheeks in my hands.
Hold out your hand,
look through my face,
My window. I am yours.
You are mine.
My baby, my breath,
for such a short time.

    Cathy... I just read your profile to my husband. He agreed that it is fantastic. Then I showed him this darling picture to which he responded... "Hello, beautiful Canadian baby!"

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Thank you so much.
    (I hope you found a good salmon recipe)

    You are wonderful; like a bouquet.

    Thank you for coming by. I am still thinking about those fabulous red clogs.

    {{ }} to you mon ami;)

    As much as I would love love to take full credit, it is actually adapted from a Canadian Beer commercial. I am not white trash for that, really, I'm not. And hello beautiful Irish American momma, Italian American poppa and gemisched babe.

    I do not take a compliment from you lightly, my writing heroin. Thank you for the recipe. I was explaining it to my husband and son tonight and all they could say was why; why WHY? Because it is hilariously funny.

    Great White;
    Hello there. Shouldn't you be studying? Him, by the way, but no offense taken; you really can't differentiate at this age.

    I've decided to stay for a while too. I love the rain too - got caught in a downpour on the way home from work last night & didn't mind one bit...except the list of movies I'd been looking for turned to a little pile of pulp in my pocket. Nothing lost - it can be re-made :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Glad you're sticking around; we'll stick it out together! I am interested in hearing about your movie selections.

    Awh! Don't make me cry... He's precious! :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    And you're precious in the fur hood! :)

    When my son was six weeks old, a man who had a few grown children of his own gave me a piece of advice I have always followed; pay attention.

    It all goes by so fast ... the growing up.

    He is so adorable :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:
