Trips Around the Sun.

Well, its official. I’ve made 28 trips around the sun.  I feel very lucky for my time here. Birthdays hold a deeper meaning each year.  A time of reflection where as before it was a time to party and go crazy (which I still did, don’t worry.)  They do have more depth these days.

The last couple of birthdays I have given more thought to the fact that this day many years ago my mom gave birth to me. Sometimes I get wrapped up in my new age or just myself and I forget about the actual birth.   I asked my mother last year to write down the story of my birth because I didn’t know very much about it…

  I learned that my mom and dad house burned down in Louisiana when they were pregnant with me. Both of my parents lost their jobs when they were pregnant with me, I was ‘2 weeks overdue’ which I think ‘overdue’ is a silly term.  Because a baby knows exactly how and when they should come out.  I was fashionably late.

I learned that my dad was a part of the entire delivery and helped my mom with her breathing, He also kept the mood light.  Which I can definitely believe. I was 7 pounds and 4 oz.  My mother breast-fed me for 3 months and when she went back to work she came home over lunch while the babysitter was there and breast-fed. 

I am so glad I asked my mom to journal about her birth experience.  It’s something I like to read and think about on my birthday.  Remembering what the day actually represents.   Thanks Mom and Dad.
