I was going to write about my daughter's birth, but I'm finding it very emotional, and I will have to write about it some time when I'm not so choked up.
I am very emotional every year on my children's birthday. Perhaps it's because every detail of their birth is so crystal clear and it's hard to believe that it wasn't just yesterday.
I've never had a problem with my children growing up. I've spent every moment I could with them, and I enjoyed every minute of it, knowing how fleeting it all would be. Yet the birthdays make me so sentimental. Well, I guess that's just being a mum, isn't it?
So, since I'm finding myself stuck for words, I'll post a photo of my daughter with me just minutes after her birth.
And at 15 months. She was a going concern and a tiny package full of mischief. Look at that twinkle in her eye. She's still a going concern, but she's grown up to be a poised and lovely young woman. She still has a hint of mischief, in the best possible way.
Well, that's all I have to say about that, or I'll start blubbering.
Many, many thanks to all of you who posted such kind words and celebrated my milestone with me yesterday. I so appreciate it.
'Til tomorrow. Much love to all.
