March 11th………“WHEN GROWING UP ON YOUR FARM, DID YOU HAVE SOME EXTRA LOVING FROM EXTENDED FAMILY”?
POEM – “A Happy Mugging Of A Hugging” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Right from the beginning, My cousins were there,
Watching me scream, With their little girl stare.
This tiny Norwegian, They must have thought,
Came screaming from “baby store”, Where he was bought!
And just so many months, From birth on this sod,
Those loving cousins, Gave me push in “hot rod”.
And on birthdays or gatherings, For camera mugs,
I was their loving target, For lots of good hugs.
As the years rolled by, I’d hear their family car,
Which signaled big fun, On our farm by far.
From birth till today, And all points in between,
I cherish happy muggings, Of huggings I’ve seen.
To be blessed with such cousins, I count it a treasure,
My “diamonds of blessings”, That are far beyond measure!!!
