A Birth Day

Blow out the candles

My youngest niblet turns eight today.

With all the trials and tribulations of solo parenting - sometimes I forget to take pause and savor the presence of my childrens' smiles, their laughs, their ability to still find joy with an innocence that is lost with the years.

So, my dear, while you are ripping the ribbons and bright paper off the presents you receive today - I will enjoy the two that I have every day.

Love, Mom
