Happy July 7, 2011
Our assignment today from Miss Jenny is the letter L. What a fine day for this assignment to come due.
Because, 54 long, years ago, my mother gave birth to a bouncing baby girl.
My LIFE began on this day.
Mom was laying around, wondering if the large belly of hers was ever going to be gone. It was a Sunday. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, a bright light shone above. (wait, that was just the delivery room light) my bad.
Mom went into labor.
The date: 7/7/57
The time: 1:07 PM
The weight: 7 lbs 7 oz
My life has been full of laughter, laziness, loving, loneliness, and
I've always loved this picture. I don't even know why. Maybe it reminds me of times when life was carefree. Or it could be just the randomness of it. "Dazee, go stand in front of the fridge, I want to get a picture of you". Look at those lovely locks. I have been
cursed blessed with naturally curly hair. At times in my life I hated it.
Here I am at maybe age 2. I'm looking rather uninterested. But I'm rocking a cute coat and shoes.
I lost many teeth.
I've lost weight and gained it back
I've given LIFE to 3 wonderful children
I've laughed till I cried
And cried when I felt like I was losing my dreams
Yes, I'm 54 years old today, but I'm still on my journey of having these later years of my life be mine.
