"dearest amanda joy, i want to wish you not just a
happy birthday but to also tell you how much you are
loved & missed by this mama. i am so proud of you &
what you have accomplished & who you are. have not
just a wonderful magical day, but i wish you good
magic for all days to come. all my love, mama"
Awwwww wow...I got this e-mail from Mama this morning, and burst into tears. I'm crying again now, just reading it. I am so grateful to have such a lovely family. They called later, singing me Happy Birthday.
On days like this, the plague of my overly-emotional self seems nothing but a blessing. My sheer love for others pushes me along and seems the single most beautiful thing that life has to offer. Seriously. This really is what it's about.
