I'm all pumped up and someplace to go;
out here in the hinterlands of the North woods.
Asher John Tutt, our third grandchild has arrived, and there's a "no-holds-barred" mentality at work within me.
The temps are freezing,
  the windchill is presenting hazardous weather conditions,
but all is well in my soul.
I'm "warm to hot" glowing with anticipation and excitement;
a child has been born,
and entered my world.
Deemed exciteable on even the most mundane of days, my "tiggerish" zeal and bounce is off the charts today.
I think my spouse might even be hiding from me.
Hmmm ...
New Year's is one of my favorite times of the year,
 and this year's early "frontrunner" boasts favorable suggestions to me;
all 8 lb. 8 oz. of him.
Mmmm ... such sweet breath of beginning,
and then catapulting into the inducement of other arenas:
Creative and Explorative and on and on ...
Emphatically, I progress forward with a list of goals and desires teeming with life, beauty, and constructive growth.
It's just so delicious and good to me!
And I wonder what "you've" got to say to me.
 Energetically. Enthusiastically. Decidedly.
I gear up for the New Year with the Spirit breathing His warm breath inside of me.
 He's so real that I can almost feel halos and rings of steamy breath rise up inside of me.
He's on the move and God be praised ...
He resides in me.
Don your bomber hat,
get out your winter gear,
grab a pair of ice skates,
do some figure eights,
and make an angel or two.
God's blessing on your New Year,
I hope to see you.
