Reflections on Birthday Number Five
When I grew old and married I began to see things differently. I began to believe that a child might add something to my life. Ellen came along soon after this revelation. But it was not until AFTER she entered our lives that I realized how much a child can add to your life. And how the trouble, work and distraction are more than compensated by love, laughter and the satisfaction of seeing a life being formed.
For five years I have marvelled at her growth, watched her personality form, and laughed with her.
What fun to see her smile!
