My Daughter’s Birthday

Fifty years ago I gave birth to my beautiful daughter, and today I celebrate those 50 years. While she and I live thousands of miles apart , we have managed to remain close. I often wonder about the mothers whose children embarked on lifelong journeys during times of no communication devices. How sad and distraught they must have been to know their child was gone, and probably never to be seen again. I am thankful I live in a time when we can “zoom” and visit over the airwaves. While it’s not the same as sharing day-to-day life, it is a pleasure to see her and hear her voice in the present time.

So, I wish my daughter a wonderful future in her faraway place, and share my love through the digital world.

I have aged. Of course. I was born in Trenton, NJ in 1942. I now live in Kentucky. It's 2019. My marriage has lasted 56 years, and I still love the man. My three children live far from us, and we do miss them; however, it's fine with just he and me. We are best friends. I love my dogs and my horses. I have failed as a writer (dreams died long ago), but I still dabble now and then. I have always been restless; perhaps because I have moved so many times in my life. I feel like something is waiting to happen around the corner. I graduated from Salem College at 55 years of age. I am a woman.
