Shadow Shot Sunday...a child is born...

Link
Fortythree years ago today
a child was born
a family smiled
a mother cried
for beauty
in such
a small thing

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PIPER
a mother's love for her child shines always!

Growing up was difficult at times
for both of us, we raised each other...

Your the reason for my grey hair,
my laughs
my cries
you're the shadow of me
and my Mother's pride...
have a wonderful birthday
my wild child...
I'll love you to the end!

And guess what...Shadow Shot Sunday...nuff said!

My gosh! She looks like a younger, punkier version of you! A beautiful woman. I'm sure you find it hard to believe that she is 40.
Congrats to both of you for getting through it all in one relative piece!

The words of love are here, and such a loving touch shows a mother's sentiments. Ours are only 22 and 20 now, yet our hopes are for the best. A parent can never stop being a parent. Happy birthday to Piper, the best gift for her mom!

A terrific celebration post for your daughter! Beautifully expressed! And an awesome series of photos! Love them!

Back at school for a couple of days a week! Struggling a little and will again this week cos I had a small op on my shoulder on Friday! Very painful!

Managed to get out in afternoon sun down to the water! So many people wandering the beach! Some even tried swimming! Beautiful water reflections from boats and piers! Enjoyed this because we are supposed to be having another week of rain!

Hope your weather is cooling a little for you!

Super hugs dear friend as always! And if you travel my way, hope my blog is kind to you this time!

Happy Birthday to Piper! Your pride is evident with your beautiful words, glad I stopped by. So, when and where is the cake and ice cream being served?
The shadow shot of that frame is cool as well. I had to go back and look for shadows as I was looking at your photos and reading your descriptions.
Hope all is good with you. I'm in Milwaukee and have a non stop schedule coming up, but I'll be around as I can to check up on you. (What kind of cake is it?)

Peace
