Best of 2009: Number 1

In celebration of 2009, I'm republishing some of my favorite posts during the final week of what has been wonderful year. I hope you enjoy reading or rereading some favorites.
If you have a favorite post, please share which one has stuck with you in the comments, and maybe it will reappear in the top posts this week

Something Old, Something New
Originally posted September 11, 2009
A few days ago
I called you baby,
watched your eyes
close slowly,
studied your little hands
while you were fading fast into sleep.

Wondered how the life
inside my contracting belly
would change the first
face where I first found
astounding love.

Now you hold that little life,
with the hands I thought
so small a few days ago
cupping even smaller hands.

And my head whispers to my heart
that I should no longer call you baby.

But I know
that even when your hands
span my own
I'll still be calling you
my baby.

    Happy New Year! I wish you and your family all the love, health, happiness and joy that life has to offer.


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
