A Joyous Happy Birthday, Ashley!

Ashley was pretty much this fun as soon as she showed up in 1976, election month, right after my debut as a pregnant Minnie Mouse for Halloween.  Even after all these years I can still remember my emotions from that moment she was born.   Our first born, who bore the brunt of parents that knew little of what that meant,  yet she has no bad memories, no sad stories, just optimism of what life holds, and what life will always hold for her.  I am so grateful for the lessons she continues to teach me of enjoying life, the hard, the good, the moment, yes, the right now.
Thanks for making Minnie not be pregnant forever, for making me a real, live, mother.  Happy Birthday! I will love you forever.
