today is my first year celebrating MY birth mom. the fact that I got to text her today is overwhelming + unimaginable. today is bringing up very surprising emotions for me- joy, happiness, excitement, peace yet sadness, guilt.
is it hers?
is it mama L’s?
is it my own?
is it my moms?
i’ve thought about my birth mom for my whole life. I’ve thought about this celebration as a potential. here I am left with many tears and zero words.
still processing all of this.
still sifting through my thoughts + emotions.
the most common word flooding my mind:
thankful for her decision.
thankful for my life.
thankful for this reunion.
thankful for her bravery.
thankful for her honesty.
thankful for her openness.
thankful for her story.
thankful for her.
today, I know her favorite colors are turquoise and cobalt blue.
today, I know her favorite flower are sunflowers.
today, I know her favorite food is mexican.
today, I know she has a sweet tooth verses salty taste buds.
today she knows I am thinking of her and I know she is thinking of me.
today is much more than I thought it would be.
