Birthday Girl

Tomorrow is M's birthday.  She will be 11 years old.  I still vividly remember the day she was born.  I was there as Jeanne struggled during labor and was so scared as they told her she had to have an emergency c-section. But I also remember how happy she was to see her little girl.  M is a very special kid.

Tonight as I put her to bed and told her how much I love her, she told me she didn't care about her presents.  She was just happy to have a family.  It brought tears to my eyes, but they were tears of happiness.  For the first time in days, I was truly happy she was part of our family.  I need to remember these moments when things get hard.

Happy birthday M.  I'm happy to have our family too.
