"ten minutes ago"

I had this all preloaded to post Monday, but I wasn't singing it until last night. And this morning. And now...



Ten minutes ago, I saw you.
I looked up when you came through the door.
My head started reeling.
You gave me the feeling
The room had no ceiling or floor.

Ten minutes ago, I met you,
And we murmured our "How-do-you-do's?"
I wanted to ring out the bells
And fling out my arms
And to sing out the news:

I have found her!
She's an angel,
With the dust of the stars in her eyes.

We are dancing.
We are flying!
And she's taking me back to the skies.

(Please excuse Lesley Ann Warren. Dreadful. Almost as bad as Audrey as Eliza or Whatserface as Guinevere. But Stuart Damon is so joyful!)

D2b has nearly-black hair and golden-brown eyes.
And dimples.
She's a little peanut, can be a frightened rabbit, and is certainly a survivor.

More about the trip once I'm home. But, I thought you'd want to know.

Tina in CT said...

I've been checking your blog constantly hoping for an update about D2B.

How old is she?

I have goosebumps!

Enjoy the rest of your visit with her.

Oh, Kate!! Hooray!! Can't wait to hear more. And I would not have recognized Stuart Damon in that video.
Love, Nif

I'm so happy to hear that she is d2b!!! Congratulations! That's the best news all week. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Dee said...

I can't believe you found that song! I LOVED watching that when I was a kid, and I thought Lesley Ann Warren was awesome!

I am SO excited to hear about your daughter. Of course, since she is older you are going to have some different challenges. If you'd like me to put together some tips, shoot me an email. After adopting two older kids I know a few things you might want to try, to ease her transition.

Can't wait to hear more about her!

Andrea said...

Pfft I could excuse just about ANYTHING, for the sake reading THAT news!!! Oh, Kate, HOORAY! I am just BOUNCING and I suspect I will keep bouncing all day! CONGRATULATIONS! Eeeee!

(okay, watching this again I do have to ask, HOW did she get that part? But I had a similar reaction when watching The Happiest Millionaire, so I am mostly over that, and your news trumps just about ANYTHING, so pfft to Lesley Ann!)

You're awful. I'm sitting at the front desk as I read your post and now I've got to grab the tissues as I'm crying. So glad you met your angel.
