Dorothy gave birth on this day back in 1956 to a healthy baby girl- that baby was me- Cheryl Doreen.
If it wasn’t for mom and dad getting married back in 1954 on March 13- I would not be where I am today. So– thanks mom and dad, for falling in love, for having me and my brothers, for shaping my life, for teaching me the rewards of hard work, the joy of family and friends, for standing up for what I believe in, caring for me when I needed it, for loving me, for letting me have the freedom to make my own choices-and mistakes, and for believing in me.
I do know that if mom remembered it was my birthday, she would either tell me in person or write these words on a card “Cheryl, you’re such a good daughter”. I’ll take it- because I’m the only one she has.
Love and Light,
