Today, we celebrate the birth of an utterly amazing woman who took the world by storm 32 years ago this very day. Happy birthday to our beautiful daughter, Brittany.
Britt, seeing the person you’ve evolved into over the past three decades is what allows me to parent your very precocious brother today. Through you, I am blessed to see the beauty that lies on the other side of the parenting mountain.
You are fierce! You are strong! You are brilliant! You are light! You are laughter! You are love! And you are loved.
Today, we celebrate you, my beautiful daughter. The world is a much better place because of you.
The relationship between parents and children, but especially between mothers and daughters, is tremendously powerful, scarcely to be comprehended in any rational way. ~ Joyce Carol Oates
