Taylor is fifteen

Fifteen years ago today the love of my heart was born to the child of my heart. Rae gave birth to this wonder who has been a shimmering beam of love and hope in my life for all these years. My love for Taylor is a painful thing, cutting me with worries over her, wishing she might never have to know heartache or suffering or illness or death and knowing she will certainly know all of these, as do we all. Oh, but I hope she knows the flip side of these, that she will experience love and joy and fulfillment and passion and serenity in this life. Kids like Taylor are my hope for this world. I love you, Tay, always and forever.

Here are a few of the posts I’ve written about her…
