ODE TO O

Standard

30 years ago, I was in the hospital awaiting the birth of my first, and as it turned out, only, child.  I still remember how I felt that night.  I was excited to be meeting my child but sad also, that she would no longer be inside of me where I could protect her.  It was just her and me.  Never again would we be that close.  I remember weeping thinking that this was the end of the greatest time in my life.  But I was wrong.  Her birth was just the beginning of the best years of my life.  I have loved being her mom.   From birth, she has had such a sweet spirit.  Never one to complain or criticize.  Always loving and caring.  Not perfect, but pretty darn close!  She has been the joy of my life.   The song in my heart.

Happy Golden Birthday dear O.  May your children be  as much of a blessing to you as you have been to me.  I love you more than you can ever imagine.  Today, tomorrow and always.  For eternity.
