Happy Birthday Michael

Today is one of the days of the year I don’t look forward to, I wish I did, I should, if things had been different today would be a joyous celebration. Today Michael would have been 30, my son would be turning 30 today, instead he is in heaven with God.
I still remember when he was born, it wasn’t an easy labor, it was a scary one, his heart rate dropped and they had to do an emergency C-Section.
The umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck three times; once they got him out he did start breathing. He was beautiful, perfection, all ten toes, all ten fingers and a head full of hair.
We took him home and life was so very perfect, no remnants of the scare when he was born. We played with him, bathed him and fed him, I sang songs to him, his father made up songs to sing to him. I sang Wham songs, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go was our favorite, I would hold him and sing and dance around the house and he would belly laugh. It was glorious, I had 12 weeks of pure, unadulterated joy, he was everything a mother could want.
So on this day, the day I was given such a glorious gift, I celebrate his 12 weeks, I celebrate that God gave me the 12 weeks I had with him. If this had been a different time in history I would not have had any time with him. I will always cherish the time I had, the laughter, the joy, the singing and dancing.
Happy Birthday Michael, I know my mom is making you a cake and you will have the best birthday with your grandparents, great grandparents, throw in one great Aunt Effie and you have a perfect day. I will miss you until the day I join you, then we will celebrate your birthday together.
