At 7:33am in Belgium, on March 21st in 2012, I started tweeting what ended up being my labor and delivery of my son Noah.
Since that epic day, a lot has changed.
The “Davy” you see mentioned in the tweets above, Noah’s dad, is no longer my husband anymore. I’ve since divorced him.
If you’re one of the many tweeters who followed me and tweeted me that day, then you’ve probably changed a lot to. Maybe you’ve had children or grandchildren of your own, gotten married or finished school, launched a business or lost a job, I don’t know…
I do know for certain though that more than a few people who tweeted me that day are now dead. They passed away. In some cases I got to say my goodbyes. In others, I was notified by familly and friends after their passing. But they were all very much alive on March 21, 2012.
I share this because I want to acknowledge the many different bonds I’ve forged through blogging, and through social media.
Today is not only Noah’s birthday, but it’s also the day I’m re-launching my personal blog with this Happy Birthday Noah piece.
Happy Birthday, my deareast Noah. Thank you for inspiring me to open up again.
