“Not without my Daughter”

As I sit here, ponder and write, I am filled with excitement to see my beautiful daughter who is about to arrive for a wonderful week of family celebrations.  I cannot wait to see and hug her. She carries with her my unborn granddaughter and the promise of new life. It’s gooseflesh stuff……..

We are celebrating many different things this week, first my husband is having a special birthday party where we will all sit and maybe dance too, toast him and our good fortune to have him in our lives…….Milestones like these bring my life back into alignment and the focus reminds me of where I have been, who has been with me and what my life is really all about.

An important part of these times is the gathering of the people around me, my own spiderweb. Apart from my close family, quite a few friends, across the decades, will be with us. Oh my gosh, the memories, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Was I ever that mad hatter person, maybe I still am…….. I will try, just try, to remember where, when, why and what, when I see and greet them all…..

I am already getting such great flashbacks. This moment is quiet but the hullabaloo is about to start…….a.week of family chaos, loud and festive……..and I say

BRING IT ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
