This post will go live at 6:00 p.m. and it will mark the exact minute 13 years ago that I gave birth to my sweet baby, Grace Gabrielle... or, as you know her, Gigi.
As trite and cliched as it is, I feel unsettled about how quickly the time has passed since that evening. When I reflect that she will be graduated and gone to college in a mere five years, I experience emotional vertigo.
And then I pass by her bedroom and suddenly understand why some species eat their young.
The sloppy little spud.
Happy birthday, Gigi!
Thank you for blessing my life with your sweet soul, your great sense of humor, and your feisty temperament!
As to the rest of you people... thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
