Baby Girl

Sixteen years ago today I was awakened by contractions and fifteen long hours later gave birth to the most beautiful girl on the planet.

The subsequent years have been an adventure in growing up, for both of us, punctuated by a few tears and a whole lot of laughter.

I am perpetually in awe of this child, who seems to know more, with each passing day, about who she is and what she wants.

There is not much more that I can say on the topic without resorting to clich├ęs about love and pride and the joys of motherhood.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity to have been a part of her life.
