December 22nd: life changed again

Nineteen years ago my life changed, again.

There had been changes, momentous changes in my life up to then. After all, years earlier I had married and then given birth to my son. I had learned to love with everything in my heart, I had learned to be patient, to pay closer attention, to give without thought, without qualm.

Nineteen years ago today, my daughter was born.

And I learned, once again, to love unconditionally.

Happy birthday, Yvette.

Thank you for being you, for laughing and giggling, for fighting and making up, for asking questions, for giving answers, for being brave enough not to care what anyone thought of you when you were 14 and dressed as a Crayola crayon to go trick or treating. For being determined enough to follow through with all the hard work involved in your decision–shortly after that–to one day be a doctor. For being self-aware as well as empathetic to those around you.

Thank you for all the love you’ve brought to my life.
