“Happy Mother’s Day!”
A flicker of confusion falls to her face, “is it Mother’s Day too?”
“Nope. Just the day you became a mother 31 years ago.”
The smile returns, “You’re right. How clever of you.”
I wasn’t being “clever,” but it dawned on me on Isaac’s birthday that birthdays are more than just for the person who has them…they are just as important for Mom and Dad. It’s the day their whole lives changed.
And so today, on the first day of my 31st year of life, I plan to spend some time with my family.
