A Lucky Number Seven
Every year, in the few days leading up to my daughter's birthday, she wakes up in the dark morning, just a few moments before her birth time, and calls to me. I don't know why, or what triggers her to do this, but each year for seven years she's done it. I wake up, go into her room, and lay down with her.
I think about how much my life has been enriched by Bronwyn's presence in my life, and how sometimes love can hurt so much, and that's okay too.
Happy Birthday, my sweet and lovely girl. I love you and wish you many more quiet and magical mornings to come.
**UPDATE** I've uploaded photos of Bronwyn's party on my Flickr page here.
