Harmony's Gifts

I can remember exactly what I was doing 27 years ago. Birthdays are like that ... especially when it comes to those of my daughters. Today my second born is celebrating her birthday and I can't help but reflect on and celebrate her life. From a feisty, creative, unique child has emerged a self assured, theatrical, unique woman who lives an artful life.

Things I love about Harmony
  • she was a feisty womb kicker and managed to crack my ribs foreshadowing her spirit
  • she has been known to buy her clothes by the pound ultimate recycler
  • she has cut her own hair for years and that takes some kind of confidence
  • she makes the most heartfelt cards and gifts - the kind you keep forever
  • she is "family sentimental" and cherishes heirlooms and traditions, even the ones that aren't pretty
  • she willingly tagged along with me whenever I asked her to - and even when I didn't
  • she is a petite package of strength and steel just like her grandmother
  • she is able to live a full, rich life on very little
  • she was unplanned but just what I needed
  • she loves her sisters, and they, her
Happy birthday Harmony. My world is brighter with you in it.
