18 years ago today I was working at my store,
helping women buy beautiful clothes,
trying to focus on my business,
because thinking about my scheduled
C-section the next day felt too scary.
I remember eating dinner and going to bed that night,
telling myself to get a good night’s sleep
because I wouldn’t get one for awhile.
Flash forward to the next afternoon.
I remember looking at Chelsea
right after her birth and thinking,
“Oh, it’s you”!
I knew her, the way I knew my
mother and father and sister;
instant recognition and instant fierce love.
You Make My Life Complete!
