My Youngest Daughter Turned 10 Today
My youngest daughter turned 10 today, and coincidentally it would also have been my Mom's 96th birthday as well.
Sadly we lost my Mom in 1997, she was taken ill suddenly with an aortic aneurism and passed away within hours, but it's good that my youngest daughter was born on the same day, so I have a lot to reflect on today.
Unfortunately with my daughter living with her Mom in Florida and with me living in England I won't get to see her, unless they decide to power on the laptop and contact me via Skype, but I did talk to her last night before I went to bed, which is soon after she came home from school, and I sang her "Happy Birthday Tomorrow" - just changed the words a bit, adding "tomorrow" to the end of every line, which made her laugh.
She was very chatty on the phone which was nice, she is now at the age where she loves to talk, but I do hope I can see her on the webcam tonight.
It's funny, but most of our family birthdays are between July and October, especially on my Mom's side of the family. Better I think than having them around Christmas time, but it does make this time of year very busy with birthday cards etc.
