I write about my kids, although I do try to respect their privacy to some level. Besides, in this crazy world one tends to try to protect one’s children from the crazies that are out there. However, I don’t believe I’ve ever mentioned my oldest child, Diana.
Today is Diana’s 36th birthday.
While many of her peers are busy with careers or family, Diana’s life is significantly different. Unfortunately Diana suffered trauma at birth which resulted in significant brain damage due to lack of oxygen. The label she gets put under is cerebral palsy, but that term is like saying “the common cold.” It describes yet doesn’t describe the situation. Diana cannot sit on her own, speak or tend to her own needs. Fortunately she is in a quality group home her mother found for her that does an outstanding job in providing for her needs.
I had tried to write more, but the words wouldn’t cooperate.
So I’ll say, “Happy Birthday, Diana! May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His face shine upon you. May he look upon you and be gracious unto you. And I ask Almighty God to bless you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.”
All my love,
