what we were doing april 10 2010

Thought I would check to see what we were doing on Julia's birth day. It was a saturday. The night before I had traveled to Tangent alberta to do a big magic show. Cara had her Klingon craft group over and the calendar said "stay at home nite" as the week had been a busy one for both of us. So it was a normal kinda day on the surface, but it was a remarkable praiseworthy day as it was the day my Julia was born YAHOOO!!!! a few days before I posted this poem on the blog:

Mother Bridge of Love

Once there were two women who never knew each other.

One you do not remember, the other you call Mother.

Two different lives shaped to make you one.

One became your guiding star; the other became your sun.

The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.

The first gave you a need for love. The second was there to give it.

One gave you a nationality. The other gave you a name.

One gave you a talent. The other gave you aim.

One gave you emotions. The other calmed your fears.

One saw your first sweet smile. The other dried your tears.

One sought for you a home that she could not provide.

The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.

And now you ask me, through your tears,

The age-old question unanswered through the years.

Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?

Neither, my darling. Neither. Just two different kinds of Love.
