For my beautiful baby...

Today is the birthday of my girl, Aja.
 She is my love, my light, my reason why I struggled and survived.
30 years ago I was young and lost.
Aja brought my heart into fruition.
  She taught me to see the world through wonderful eyes.
 Through child's eyes.
 While the years have moved on, we've laughed,
we've stumbled,
we've fallen,
and got back on our feet again.
We've travelled..."smoked with the hippies, drank with the Irish"...
We've loved and lost.
But the greatest gift is that we are now two women who are Friends.
My beautiful baby is 30 today.
1980 was a Very Good Year.

 Happy Birthday Sweets!
Here's a song for you....
