Hey,...It's Our Day!

Here it is,
another day,
another year...
time moves ahead...
but the memories never fade...
We share this day together and even
though we are miles apart...I'm still singing
Happy Birthday to you...from the bottom of my heart!
Happy Birthday Mikki!

This is our day together and I toast to your dreams for the future,
where ever your heart and road my lead you.

Somehow, I cannot conclude this special wish without
thinking how fortunate I am to have two grown daughters.
It is really something to witness this sort of maturation in your own child,
the adult settling-in, the taking-on of responsibility in life.
You raise them for it, and for awhile, but honestly,
when it happens you can't help marveling a little.

It sort of feels like an ongoing apprenticeship,
just like everything else in life that matters to me__
being a mother, a wife, a daughter, or simply
a women alive in the world, learning to be content to be myself.

"What children take from us, they give.
We become people who feel more deeply,
question more deeply, and love more deeply."
Sonia Taitz

I love being your MOM!

  5. Great post, Marg! Happy Birthday, Mikki!

    I love your quote at the end. One of my 'daughters' is suddenly moving to Australia because of the love of her life. And that quote is exactly what I've tried to describe...it is so bittersweet that she is leaving but I know that I love much more deeply because of her...and my other daughter.

    Thanks for the post.

  9. Guess what? I had my daughter on my birthday too; April 2nd - almost 34 years ago. And now, she's due with her fourth child ( a girl) at the end of March. How amazing would it be to have a third generation on the same day?!?
    It could happen!
    Happiest of birthdays to you & your daughter.
