A Sleeping Baby

A Sleeping Baby

When trouble crowds in
Watch a baby sleep
Touch a baby arm
Kiss a baby hand

When stress climbs high
Whiff a little baby smell
Rock a baby, nuzzle
Watch a baby sleep

  1. This is lovely. I am a follower now. I am so glad that we found each other. Thank you so much for following my blog, judysp.wordpress.com Happy Blogging cheers Judy 🙂

  2. Though I doubt we’ll be having any more grandchildren, my niece is expecting, and we’ll get to see the baby all the time. I will think of your lovely poem when I nuzzle my grandniece or grandnephew.

    • Thank you Coming East, and welcome to the patio. I just read your inspiring letter to your son-in-law, and look forward to checking out more of your posts.

      My daughters aren’t married yet, but I’m beginning to look forward to
      grandmother-ing. I haven’t held a baby in a long time.

  3. It seem so long ago my girls were baby’s. Nice to volunteer in the nursery at church once in awhile and get a nice baby nuzzle!

  4. Now that my twin girls are no longer babies i can agree lol, but when they were i had no clue what i was doing so i couldnt enjoy all the smells and such

    • I appreciate the honesty and reality of your statement. That’s often true of young, busy mothers. But when we are grandmothers (or aunts, neighbors, friends) we’ll know enough to take the time to enjoy the delights of an infant.

    • Thank you, Virginia. I’m honored to hear from you. I just read your ‘about’ post and I absolutely loved it. It’s the best, most interesting ‘about’ post ever. My favorite part was when you said one can never have too many books. I loved the photos of your book shelves, and I look forward to many more interactions with you!
