It happened at 20:45

on the 9th of October, 2003. For years my mum always used to say, oh at 1:13 on this date 12, 20, 28, 32 years ago...... I used to dismiss her with a roll of the eyes, but now I know that the birthday of a child is also a celebration for the mother. It's not just because you have that gorgeous babe in your life, but a remembrance of their arrival and all that time meant.

Ella has the kindest heart and nature of anyone I've ever met, and that includes the adults. She is generous and thoughtful, I find her so beautiful and she grows only more so each year. So loving with her family, especially with her sister who I know challenges her patience daily. Starting school has show her even more of her personality, so eager to learn, patient with her friends, respectful towards her teachers.
Today begins the festival that is Ella's birthday weekend. Happy 6th Birthday darling.

Hi...Our girls share the same birthday, my Veda is 11 though! and i was also looking at photos of her and me. It feels nice to see yourself in them dont you think. Looks like Ella had great pool party.

I just said out loud "oh my goodness" before I even read your words, knowing full well that older photograph was you. A definite match there!
