I admire this about her.
And today? The actual birth-day? We had special meals, gifts on the trampoline, and some after-dinner frozen-yogurt. All lovely. But you know what else happened today? In third grade one gets to bring something in for sharing. You know what Lucette brought? Her mama. She even wrote a post-it note reminder for me so I wouldn't forget.
Oh, dear child. You are the gift on this day, May 8.
