The Wheel — July 17, 1988 Birthday Girl!
Today I turn 31! Each year on my birthday, my Mom would tell me the story of how I came into the world. When I was an older teenager, I’d roll my eyes and smile and say “yeah yeah I know, Mom, you tell me every year.” And every year she’d cry (literal tears lol) and tell me again, how special that day was to her. I think of my own daughter’s birth and can now understand how profound it was for her. I also almost killed her (preeclampsia for the pregnancy and broken up placenta inside after birth) but she never reminded me of that (I knew after asking during regular conversation) and she would tell me how my Dad was so impressed with me he couldn’t stop staring at me and smiling. My life, his life, my sister’s life — we were everything to her. I was thinking of the cycles of life when I woke up this morning, and felt at peace with my “new normal”. I can’t go visit Moo-Moo or Gramps. I can’t introduce my Mom to my daughter. But I survived the worst to live the rest of my life in honour of them, cherishing the life they brought into this world out of pure love. Today, and all days, I miss my family that left us, but as I draw cards and speak with them in our new language, our new normal, I am reminded of the magic that is life and death. I was reborn the day my Mom died and I celebrate her for bringing me here to experience it all. Have a good day!
