Today is my gorgeous daughter Jolie's birthday and she is and has been for the last 9 years, my best ever birthday gift, hands down. You guessed it, she and I share the same birthday. Beautiful Jolie was born after only a 40 minute labor, wide awake, a picture of health, active and just beaming (or maybe that was me), much like she remains to this day. How blessed did I feel to have my wonderful, healthy, baby girl and that was truly the gift to beat all gifts. Not to worry, I won't gush on any further, I just wanted to quietly share with you how blessed I feel when our birthday rolls around and I can, once again, reflect on one of the many reasons I am so very grateful to have her in my life. Happy Birthday Jolie! You're truly the best birthday gift ever! Love you darling girl! <End excessively sentimental, love-filled rave>
