i have a namesake

a ray of light on the darkest day: my cousin lauren delivered a healthy baby girl yesterday. full term, 7 lbs, with a few bumpy respiratory moments but now all is well. and guess what she named her? camille. i will be there with them tomorrow. i know holding that beautiful baby will break my heart as i think of taylor mackenzie, but i could not be more honored or feel more peace in my heart at such a disconcerting time.

life is strange that way.
A reminder that good things
also come from a wish.
