From Phyllis Babcock

 

I was born in May , 1951 in Saskatchewan, Canada.  Al, my husband and I currently reside in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada. We have two wonderful sons Kerry and Ryan. My oldest son Kerry who is happily married to Patti Smith (not the singer).  Ryan is to be married to Jen who has given me two beautiful girls  from a previous marriage.  Ryan and Jen gave me a beautiful grandson . Kerry and Patti gave me another beautiful grandson  .

This is one of the absolute best things in life.

 

When I first joined the soup, poetry was my means of self expression. I had no former training but was amazed at all the forms of poetry that exist. Initially, I had doubts about my writing ability. However you all made me feel I had something to contribute. I am so thankful for that!

 

I am a Christian with hopes for a better peaceful world. I am very conservative, a bit of a perfectionist, I try to be funny but I think I fail horribly. I have a soft heart and I am open and honest. Thank you for reading my poetry and for your comments and inspiration.

 

God Bless, Phyl

    Phyllis, I am so glad you did this. A little birdie told me this morning that it was Carrie's birthday and I had to leave to work, so you beat me to the punch!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CARRIE, and I am also seeing it is YOUR birthday too, Phyllis?? Wow, a big birthday greeting to you too. Are you guys Taurus or Gemini? Seems like you are right on the border of those two awesome horoscope signs.

    We are the Gemini twins......if you are seeing double, that is us !!! Thanks so much Andrea for the good wishes !!
    Babcock Avatar Phyllis Babcock Date: 5/21/2014 6:00:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    We are Gemini most of the time but we sometimes hit Taurus as we are in the latter of the cusp as they say. THANKS my friend for your wishes. It has been an awesome week.
