14 years ago, Dec. 5th. It both feels like it was just yesterday, and in another lifetime. Parenting teaches me more and more and with more surety and with a truer ring than anything in my life experience that life is so full of flipsides and contradiction. Nothing is black and white, and clean cut they way we like it.
Who knew 20 years ago or even 15 that I would be the mother of 5 fine children and married to the man I wanted to be married to? Not I.
When I look back at the 14 years you've been a part of my life, Sophie dear one, my eyes fill and I can't
keep the tears from spilling. My heart is so full. You are so full of promise. I am so proud I can't stand it. God bless you my dear one.
