Recently I read a piece of trivia that stated babies laugh 300 times a day. It is true. I am fortunate and blessed to be able to see my granddaughter often. She laughs at me, she laughs at her grandpa, she laughs at herself, she laughs at her reflection in the mirror. The world for a baby is so simple: happy or angry, hungry or full, tired or wide awake, and curious of everything. There are no worries. Babies have not yet developed the concept of time and do not worry about the future. Babies live in the very moment that they are.
Can I learn a lesson from my granddaughter? Can I begin to live more in the moment and less in the past? Or not anxious about tomorrow?
For the time being, I will enjoy spending time with her and treasure the moments when she is just so tickled with herself that she giggles.
I’m so glad you landed on my blog. I’m nervous and excited about this new venture. This blog is without an agenda. I may write about my children, my faith, music, politics, or the bunny rabbit in my backyard. That is why the color theme is “spectrum.” It is not a mommy blog or a recipe blog. Now, having said that there is no particular agenda, that does not mean that I am unbiased. Almost everything I say will be biased to my outlook on the world. I have been formed by many events and I am still a work in progress.
A few words about the name of the blog. It is surprisingly difficult to find an original name for a blog. So I started typing in various phrases in French, and quoineuf was accepted and I jumped on it before it could be taken by another aspiring blogger. Now if you are a Francophile you will know that I butchered the phrase and you may be cringing and all I can say is je m’excuse. If you read this and wonder “what is a Francophile?” no worries, you are not a Francophile.
Quoi de neuf? translates roughly to the American phrase “What’s up?” If you must know the literal translation it means “What’s new?” I hope to bring new ways of looking at old things to your screen.
So, again, I am so glad you landed here. Come back often. Give me feedback because I like healthy discussion.
