Happy Birth Day, Mommy

Standard

31 years ago, my mother gave me the greatest gift EVER. About this time of day, a 19 year old girl was giving birth in an Army hospital in Germany. To me.

31 years later, I’m 5’10” with red hair and green eyes, big ideas and even bigger opinions. My mother gave me the gift of birth but she also gave me the gifts of faith, humor, compassion and a heart big enough to survive in this often very cruel world.

31 years later, I am thrilled at the close relationship I have with my mother. I am delighted at the bond forming between Munchkin and her Nana.

So, today, Mommy…. Happy Birth Day. Who has more fun than us?
NOBODY.

So many hats. Only one me. Believer. Wife. Mom. Communicator. Actress. Volunteer. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Tired. Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I laugh at myself and, generally, over think my life.
