14


14, originally uploaded by sulustumoses.


At this time fourteen years ago (9:24 pm), Rhonda suffered through the last moments of her horrendous delivery. She had already suffered labor pains for the better part of four days and had reached the point of exhaustion and delirium.

My aunt had a dream that Rhonda gave birth at 10:04 pm, so that became our focal point. Even the doctor agreed it would be highly possible. Then as the second hand turned the clock to that exact minute, Dakota entered the world! It was a dream fulfilled on many levels.

In that time, I'm very happy to see the young man he has become.

Fourteen - such a special age. I remember it fondly. I was becoming my own person - breaking away. I wish him well. Many blessings.

Yeah, my 14th year sort of fell upon me unawares. I was becoming my own person without fully realizing. It was all sort of haphazard, and just a little traumatic.
