Two of my favorite people have birthdays. Who could have told me the intense connection and recognition of a new soul that I would feel upon seeing the small creature born from my daughter’s womb? I think I must have known her in a past life, I think I understand her completely. I am enthralled by her feisty personality, her silent communication (just like her mother’s), and her mischievous smile, in a person two feet tall!
Was it really two years ago that I announced her birth? Our princess, Maryjane Rose, is two years old the 8th. A tea party and mass gift giving will ensue. Five sets of grandparents will gather, three could not make it, a huge family adores this little girl. We are so blessed to have her.
And behind the scenes, snowed into a hospital two years ago, holding a new life, a new life for us, was Doug who spent his birthday cradling his first grandchild. My partner in all things from business, to celebration, to mourning, to farming, to family, to friendship. He is my stability and a part of my very soul.
So, happy birthday my dear Maryjane and Doug (Papa). Wishing us all many, many more years of celebrations of life and love and family!
