Thanks For Having Me

Years ago a friend told me that on her birthday, she always got her mom flowers.

That has stayed with me.   I’m not a flower giving kind of person.   But I am a sentiment.

And I was born.

Because my mom gave birth to me.

So every year I thank my mom for having me.

My mom always says “it was my pleasure”.

Okay, I’ve given birth.  The process it’s self is not a pleasure.  But the honor and amazement and gift of having a child.  Of creating life. . . .  life.


If we stop the world spinning and take a second to think about it.


It’s been amazing.

So, yeah, Mom.   Thanks for having me.
