Ode to Our Moms

I shared my previous post, “Warrior Woman”  this morning with my dear friend Joanie, who wrote an “Ode to Our Moms,” as a response to that post. I share that Ode below.

Joanie and I each have moms who were born in the autumn of 1929.  Each of our moms were raised in Brooklyn, New York. Each of our moms have daughters (Joanie and I!) who like to write poetry and prose.

And each of our moms fell last week, were bruised – but are thank G-d doing really well.

Our moms don’t know each other. Her mom, Grandma Vita lives in Santa Monica, California. My mom, Omi Eva lives in Brooklyn, New York. Her mom fell down a flight of stairs, and my mom tripped over a bump in the sidewalk.

Joanie’s poem speaks for the courage and strength of the human spirit, and all of our mothers’  spunk and will to live, to grow and to move on!

May all our Mommies – the matriarchs and model Bubbies of us all live to be 120!! May they continue to inspire us younger Bubbies of the sandwich generation, to be just like them: with the help of G-d, – strong, vibrant, and full of gumption.

ODE TO FALLEN MOMMIES:

Cheers to our moms

Who sit with their bruises

It can be a little confuses

Ahem! That’s confusing

But they keep on singing

Do you get the rhyming?

Ing, ing, ring, ring, ping, ping

Keep on sing-singing

And fix those broken wings

Learn to fly after these things

Cuz life is too short

To cry and to snort!


Welcome Bubbies, Savtas, Grandmas, Omas, and Nanas!

Hello, hello everyone:  Bubbies, Savtas, Grandmas, Omas, Nanas, etc. Welcome to my Bubby Blog.

I guess you can call me a Blogging Bubby.

Now first let’s be really clear.  I am a grandmother, and I am a Bubby. However, I am in fact a Bubby who is not even called a Bubby. Yes, you read right! I am an Oma. Oma  is German for Grandma.  My grandkids call me “Omi,” (a take-off of Oma or Omama).  And before you start asking me how could a nice Jewish grandmother from Brooklyn bear that her grandchildren call her Omi, and not Bubby? — I will answer your question with the following statement.
