Today is my daughter's 30th birthday.
and I sit here amazed at how life is unfolding for her and myself. I was 30 when she was born on 2-24-1990, my mom had died less than a year before, so I was a Motherless Mother as Hope Edelman calls it, she also wrote Motherless Daughters. Now that I am 60 I realize how young my mom was when breast cancer stole her from us. She fought the good fight, but got tired and wanted to die at the end. It was exhausting to have witnessed her struggle. So when I became pregnant the week of her passing away - the joy it brought me was insurmountable.
I ponder about reincarnation, as she was born with my Mom's birthmark and my biological Father said it was Peggy reincarnated.
Life is puzzling, and filled with mystery...but today I celebrate her birthday and I also celebrate being her loving Mom.
