"For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children's future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it." - Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
You're My Star
Shinning Brightly In My Heart
Come What May
Through the Storms
You Will Keep Me Safe and Warm!"
Two years ago,
today, I became a Mother to this beautiful boy!
I remember feeling scared as they rushed me in for an emergency C-Section because the baby was showing signs of distress every time I had a contraction and even though my C-Section was scheduled for later in the morning, when my water broke the doctors decided to get things going sooner than anticipated. I was scared, as I'd never had a major surgery. But when they placed this boy on my chest, a rush of pure love and warmth spread over me like the light from the sunrise spreads across the sky. I felt a peace that has forever changed me for the better.
Happy Birthday Ronan!
Lucky ME that I get to be your Mother!
"Lucky Me" was written and sung by my nephew, Curtis Casey.
The Lyrics are so beautiful and perfectly describe how I feel about Ronan.
