life's remembrances

ten years ago - not today - but yesterday
we received the gift of hilary



her presence was a comfort to me in those days
and in the anxiety I felt about our "new" world



it is a new world in many ways
... not in the evil acts of men ...
but in the birth and hope of life



blessings on your day as you remember many things
and hope even more

I, too, had a baby in my arms in those terrible days. It was difficult and a blessing beyond the difficulty.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl.

happy birthday to Hilary.

my heart aches today more than I thought it would. I am even aching for my Mom and Dad, maybe mourning many who passed.

hope Hilary's wishes come true.

Beautiful message Kimmie. Our world changed 10 years ago.......sadly fear and suspicion is now a part of everyday life. I am sure the birth of your beautiful 'birthday girl' brought you joy and hope back then, does today and will continue to. We must remind ourselves that there is still much good in our world and to be thankful for that. Happy birthday Hilary. xx

I have no idea how you managed that middle photo, but it is spectacular. The sun was truly magical and showed how bright life and living can be in this otherwise sad time. Best wishes to Hilary as she hopefully grows up to be as trusting as her parents were the day before she was born!

Happy Birthday Hilary and what a wonderful way to look at our world now through the innocent eyes of our children and grand children.
