No, you’re not going to see a Sheenesque video or diatribe here. I’m not going to talk about “winning!” Not today anyway! I could write about Charlie, but I’d be here all day. Let me just briefly say that he’s the worst example for children, actors, drug addicts, etc. I feel sorry for anyone who has an addiction, but Hollywood stars make it really hard for me to be sympathetic…. The “I’m a drug addict because I have everything” is just annoying. Sure addiction happens to anyone, but call me bad, Hollywood stars gone bad don’t get a ton of sympathy from me.
Moving on…Today my beautiful, amazing son is 10 years old! Time surely does fly. When I think of the day he was born, it seems time has flown by at 78rpms…. Whenever I do think of the day he was born, I always think of when I was back in my room after the c-section and they brought him to me. They laid him down next to me and I felt such peace and such connection. We went to sleep and it was perfect. I was soooo happy, yet there was a tinge of sadness that I did not experience this connection immediately with my daughter when she was born. Gracie came into this world in a tornado…I was very sick, had an emergency C, remained pretty sick and just never had the chance to experience that silent, peaceful bliss that I did with Laurence. Of course, we were always connected – she’s my daughter. I was just sad we didn’t get to experience that in the hospital and that things were so worrisome and chaotic. But this, however, make me appreciate her even more at that time and I believe that realization actually did connect me to her more. Does that make sense?
So, it’s a big year. Laurence is 10, I will be 50 and we will be married 15 years. A time to appreciate, reflect and certainly to celebrate!!
Happy birthday Laurence. I love you to the moon and back.
