Birthday Countdown

Wow, I can't believe it's almost here! Fisher's birthday, that is. Of course I still don't know when it will be, but his due date is less than three weeks away. I am both anxious to hold him in my arms and hesitant to let him go. A mother's love is like that whether there is a farewell at birth or a farewell as a child sets off to take on adult responsibilities. The urge to protect and care for a child is hard to resist. I know there is no need to fear for his protection. He'll be going to a far safer place. It doesn't mean I won't miss him though.
