Hallo Oma

“Hallo Oma,” the sweet voice of my young grandson echoes through the phone.

It’s his first two-word phrase.

Or rather, the first two-word phrase directed at me.

A phrase that brings a smile to my face and warms my heart.

A phrase I’ve been waiting for. For some time.

Juggling three languages can’t be easy for the little guy.

That’s why I’m so enthralled.

It reminds me of Anne Frank’s words: “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy“.

In the midst of our busy lives, moments like these remind us to cherish the little things.

They remind us of what truly matters in life.

I thought you might like to be reminded, too. embarassed


enthralled = begeistert, bezaubert
to cherish = hegen, wertschätzen, schätzen
