Who is she who walks by day
in a fairy sort of way
as fleet and filmy as a cloud
but with golden grace and proud?

Who has eyes so softly blue
sheer lake waters shimmer through 
and her dimples - one, two, three 
angels patterned playfully?

Who has laughter, bubble-bursting
and for shining paths is thirsting 
who loves frogs and woodsy walks
and who talks and talks and TALKS?

Let me think! 
oh, I can guess -
You, my dearest, Rose Elizabeth 
are my loveliness!

An angel came into my life 
when my granddaughter was born
I am so very blessed to have her 
Rose turned two on Jan 26th ....

Health update ... my sister found out this week 
she does not have breast cancer, my heart is overjoyed!
I am still having pain and go for a colonoscopy on the 27th of this month.
I am sorry I have not been around to visit any of your blogs.
I just don't feel well enough to be online these days, for any length of time.
Hopefully soon, though. 
Miss all of you and think of you.


  1. Happy Birthday Rose ;o) She sure is an adorable angel!
    Doing my happy dance for your sister! Yepeeeee ;o)
