I always knew. . .

. . . that Anne-Sophie's 20th birthday would have a bit of a different touch to it. Well, first of all it's special because she turns 20, but also because of the fact that at the exact same age, I gave birth to Anne-Sophie.

It's strange to imagine that I were 20 years old - 20 years ago! So much has happened and somehow time has gone far too fast, and yet suitable slow.

I remember how happy we all were, when we saw that little girl for the first time. And we have felt the same way about her ever since . . . an unexplainable, never ending love, which contains so many feelings. (What a joy it is for us to feel this paramount kind of love twice).



Later we are going to visit Anne-Sophie in her new apartment, and celebrate her. We did start the day with a birthday song on her cellphone. And as we didn't catch her the first time we called, she now has the birthday song on her answering machine. . . maybe not a good thing at all. ;)

I must admit that it still feels a bit strange not to set up the breakfast birthday ritual with presents, birthday mats, the orchestra and candles. But it's a very heartwarming delight that Anne-Sophie's boyfriend Tim made his very own birthday ritual for her this morning - they are both so good at remembering and pleasing each other.

So, my dearest Anne-Sophie - if you see this, I send you a warm happy birthday and my very best birthday hugs.
Love mom,
xoxo

  2. Tusind tak, Miri. :)) Hun havde en rigtig dejlig fødselsdag, og det var så fint at fejre hende i sit nye hjem. :))

    ..........

    Mange tak, Dorthe - det er sødt af dig. :))
    Nej, det er godt nok underligt at hun er nået her til i livet. Men det er vidunderligt på samme tid at tænke tilbage på den tid der er gået.
    Tænk at hun var så lille da i flyttede her til! Tiden afspejler sig allermest i vores børn - så kan man virkelig fornemme hvor hurtigt det går...

    Hav en dejlig lørdag aften.

  4. Tusind tak, Stine. :)) Ja, hun er virkelig lige pludselig blevet stor - det er som om de sidste 5 år er fløjet afsted.
    Men heldigvis er hvert eneste alders trin skønt og berigende. :))

    ............

    Thank you so much, Nina. :))It's truely strange that Anne-Sophie has reached this point in life. It's actually a bit weird to call her my "child" - from now on it might be my "grown up child". ;))

    Take care and lots of love to you too.

    Ulla :)
