36 years ago today...

my mom was in the hospital delivering a baby girl! That would be me! As a mom and a women who now more fully understands the pain, heartache, sacrifice, long suffering, frustrations, joy, love and miracle of both pregnancy and birth...I've decided that birthdays should really be a celebration in honor of the mother who made life possible!

by Carol Lynn Pearson

How enviously I watched
The rose bush bear her bud...
Such an easy lovely birth.

at that moment I wished
The sweet myth were true...
That I could pluck you my child
from some green vine.

But now as you breathe
through flesh that was mine
(Gently in the small circle of my arms)
I see the wisdom of investment.

The easy gift, is easy to forget.
But what is bought with coin of pain...
Is dearly kept!

Thank you mom for your Investment! I love you!
