The Most Amazing Day of my life happened 21 years ago today. It sure is amazing how fast time flies. There is nothing in the universe like the feelings you experience that first time you hold your baby in your arms. I will never, ever forget that moment.
I send my thanks up to God for giving me a healthy, loving, intelligent, kind, generous, compassionate, funny, talented, health-conscious, beautiful son. I prayed that he would be born under the sign of Libra because he would need a calmness to remain sane among the chaos I was living in. I named him Dane because I wanted him to be strong and I wanted him to be his own person. And he is all of those things.
Dane was born 3 days early, on the Libra-Scorpio cusp. God had answered my prayer. But more importantly, I am grateful that God made a way for us to extricate ourselves from the dangerous environment he was born into. I am grateful that Dane and I have a strong, loving bond. We are, after God, each other’s rock. I am grateful for his calm nature and awed by his ability to let negativity roll off his back. He is everything I had hoped he would become and so much more. I am blessed.
