Birthday Wishes

My mother, long ago

This is my mother, at about age two.

 

This is my youngest grandchild, Isa. She is one year’s old today.

I have only seen her one time, when this picture was taken. I am one of the legions of grandparents across this country who are not part of their grandchildren’s lives. I think about her, and her sister, Freya, every single day.

And it hurts.

I hope you are well, sweet baby. I hope you know that you have my blood coursing through your veins. I hope to hold you again….someday.

  1. Where did you go? I was following your blog, and it stopped. I thought I had lost the connection. It’s taken a year, but I found it again. I miss your interesting insight into Wilmington life. I used to live there and hope to again.
