“Suddenly, through birthing a daughter, a woman finds herself face to face not only with an infant, a little girl, a woman-to-be, but also with her own unresolved conflicts from the past and her hopes and dreams for the future…. As though experiencing an earthquake, mothers of daughters may find their lives shifted, their deep feelings unearthed, the balance struck in all relationships once again off kilter.” ~Elizabeth Debold
Sitting with my coffee this morning fishing around the internet as I often do I came across the quote above. As I believe I have mentioned before, I am not an avid reader…I browse but when I hit this one I re-read it several times. Interesting!
I am now the proud parent of an 8 year old little girl. The birthday went well. Although the weather did not cooperate for a pool party, Meg had a good time playing with her cousins inside. It is always nice to see family.
Now we are back to focusing on what needs to be finished before surgery. Time is ticking, we are right around the corner! I am ready and anxious to get the reconstruction completed! Time to get the “pointy parts” back!
