February 6 is the anniversary of the very best day of my life–the day I gave birth to my (okay, ‘our’, but her dad and I have been divorced for years)–daughter, Wendy Diane.
Wendy is: smart, funny, beautiful and amazingly talented as both a writer and a singer. Her screenplay, “Truth Below”, was shown on MTV last year and of course that makes me proud, but there are many more “ordinary” reasons to be proud of Wens, too. Her deeply gentle love for animals, for instance, goes back to earliest childhood–how well I remember how she sobbed at her hamster’s funeral. (He was buried in a Ziploc.)
I hear tell that adult children don’t like to have stories told about them on blogs, so I will desist.
Suffice it to say, I won the daughter lottery on February 6, 19–, and I won in a big way.
I love you, Weniki.
