After 18 and a half hours of labour (IMO it was a lot longer, but the hospital only counted from the time I was admitted to hospital, not the hours of agonising contractions prior to that) 15 years ago today at 1.03am I finally gave birth to my firstborn child, my darling girl.
It’s been an emotional journey for Primadonna and I, losing her father when she was just 8 months old meant that for most of these fifteen years, I’ve raised Primadonna on my own. Many tears have been shed, on both our parts, grieving the loss of her Father, but I know he would have been so very proud of the young woman that Primadonna has grown to be. She was made in love and born of the love that I shared with Steve. And that’s a good enough start for anybody.
To my beautiful, bright, loving daughter, you’ll always be my little girl. You bring me more joy than a mother has a right to experience. I love you and thank God for the blessing he bestowed upon me when he gave you to me.
Happy Birthday Darling.
