Dear darling Sarah….
You, my dear, are now older than your Mom and I were when we first met. Amazing.
With most of your birthday hours already sailing by I will just say Happy Happy Birthday…and post a few of my favorite photos of you. Most of them are from the very first day I met you. I have never forgotten the sheer joy in your brother’s eyes and the impish sparkle shining back at us from yours. You were a happy smiling light that I wrapped up in my back pocket to help me find my way through the shadows back then. Looking back on these pictures today, what I remember most is finally feeling balanced… with Danny’s hand holding mine on one side…and your tiny one reaching up to take the other. Loving and loved.
Here is Sarah now. I am so proud of you !
