Twenty days ago I had this stifling feeling in my gut. I twitched my nose at sounds and audibly groaned at things that never really bothered me.

I’ve been trying to figure out how I wanted to write this. I’m still processing it but I am compelled to share my story as I always am.

Twenty-eight years ago I became a mom. I was 17 years old. Homecoming was the next day. I obviously was going to miss it. My birthday was also the next day. Patrick came screaming into the world at 10:54 at night. 54 was his dad’s jersey number. We all thought that was a funny coincidence.Continue reading “Happy Birthday, Patrick #28”
