A Tiny Spring Flower

Twenty-nine years ago this morning — though I can hardly believe it — this tiny spring flower came into my life. Angela Beth was born at 10:20am on a snowy March 30 morning, weighing a mere 5lbs 12oz. She still has the curiosity displayed in this long-ago photo and, interestingly, has worked extensively with native flowers as a wildlife biologist. Who knew? :-)

Happy Birthday, my sweet girl.

  8. What a wonderful, wonderful picture. You and I are both Pisces moms with Aries children, only mine is a son. :<)

  9. Awwww….I have residual mushballness and this reduced me to tears. Such a lovely tribute to your tiny spring flower. Happy birthday to your daughter, and many more happy memories to both of you.

  10. That is a picture that ensures the viewer will say, “Ahh, how cute.” Beautiful.

    Happy Birthday to your Spring flower!

  11. Nancy,

    Not sure there is anything new I can say…but your photos are always touching and this one is especially lovely. I know when I see photographs of my son as a child, I can almost smell him and feel him in my arms. Is it this way for you?


  12. A touching post, Nancy. You and your daughter seem to be a perfect pair, like beautiful companion plants. My children always wish me happy birthday on their birthday with the delightful quip, “Thanks for ‘borning’ me, Mom”!

  13. Nancy, what a lovely tribute to your daughter and it’s no wonder she has become a biologist with the lovely influence her mother has had. I adore that photo of her!
