This day 43 years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful redhead. Her father and I raced through Christmas shopper traffic to make it to the hospital on time. We only had about an hour to spare before she made her grand entrance. We came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve with our new little gift, all wrapped up in a Christmas stocking, courtesy of the Ladies Aid Society at the hospital.
As a little girl, she was teased about her red hair and freckles. People even asked me if I dyed her hair. What????
As each year passes, I realize how blessed I am and how I wouldn’t change anything about her or me and our relationship.
My simple wish for her is that every day, every moment of her life from here on out is filled with joy, peace, wonderful health, abundance, and all the love she so richly deserves.
Happy Birthday, Michele! You are such a treasure and worth every labor pain I had 🙂
