Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

A Little Birthday Ditty

You Know The Tune...

Happy Birthday To Me...

I Am Thirty-Three...

Most Smile And Say, "Oh - You're Still A Baby"

Tell Me - How Can That Be??

Honestly, I do feel young. Well, young-ish.

Then again, I don't get carded anymore. Well, sometimes I get the 'second glance' but that's about it.
And, I am not that girl the young flaggers with their stop/go sign turn to look at anymore...
But I am still young - ish

Most importantly, I feel special. Very special. Look what my sweet husband did for me when I was facilitating our SHARE meeting last night.

I awoke this morning to a four star breakfast (french toast, sausage, bacon, and coffee!), this gorgeous cake (german choc. - my favorite!*), and two totally amazing cards: one from him and one from my Bear.

His said, "To My Wife, My Friend, My Soul Mate"

And all this before 8am. Enough said...a very happy birthday to me indeed.

*We DID NOT eat cake for breakfast. But let it be said: I was tempted!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! What wonderful cards. I'm a total believer in cake for breakfast, but I think it's a grownup privilege. Kind of hard to explain to your girls.

Another Dreamer said...

Happy Birthday Cara!!!!!!!

Woohoo, sounds like you got treated pretty well too ;)

And hey, I don't see what's wrong with cake for breakfast, lol.

You should TOTALLY eat cake for breakfast on your birthday!

I have a feeling you'll be a looker when you're 66. Maybe 99!
