Laundry done, risotto on the stove, distractions in my head.

Today is the anniversary of my daughters birth.

I am lazy and languishing, not working on my book just thinking of you instead.

My daughter  was adopted-out at birth so I have thought of her so many times since April 9, 1971.

Who she became.

Am I a grandmother?

Did I pass her in the grocery store?

Or rather has she translated and come back to me in the form of a sponsee in my recovery programme?

Is she the hairdresser that fusses over me?

Or perhaps she is the clerk in the hardware store who always carries out my parcels?

Is she one of my daughters- of -the- heart who call me every three months?

Is she you dear heart?

  1. Thank you kindly dear hearts for liking this post…..the risotto disappeared….the clouds have gone….it is another learning day.

  2. Reading your post,drove my tears to fall down writing the following:

    ( Perhaps I couldn’t hear your giggle
    Perhaps I couldn’t see you wiggle
    Perhaps I couldn’t hold you whispering your name
    Perhaps I couldn’t, your first painting, frame
    Perhaps it’s my destiny to see empty forever your bed
    Perhaps it’s your destiny not to wake up to the smell of my bread
    But all I’m sure about is that my beats only for you kneel to pray
    Every year I celebrate alone your birthday…)

    • WOW….do you want to allow me to post this as guest author on my blog Please advise.

      • Well it was born under the effect of your words,
        so It’s yours….I don’t see it complete as it was in a form of a reply, unless you want to tell the story, but feel’s an honor on my behalf to be invited..
