There are events in our lives that show up without notice. Surprises we weren’t expecting, and yet, once they’re here, we know that we could never live without them.
Our Empress, for example. On this day, 26 years ago, I had my last baby.
She is simply an amazing and beautiful being, inside and out. She changes every life she touches. (And I’m not just talking about the hospice rescues, although, that’s a double fucking miracle right there.)
To be around her is to know joy and the true meaning of lovingkindness. It was MY gift to be allowed in her company.
Happy Birthday to Emma, the party is next week, but this day belongs to you.
