Waiting, waiting, waiting for Micah's birthday call. I wish it was his last b-day in prison, but next year it will be celebrated the week before he gets out.
As a mother celebrating the birth of a child it is always a mixed emotional bag. When that child happens to be growing into a man in prison the emotional bag gets a bit more emo.
I just try not to focus on the last three birthdays and try to think about how much fun it will be to make up for all those missed birthday parties.
The good thing is his grandma got to get out to visit him over the weekend. No one that has never had a loved one incarcerated nor been locked up themself can imagine the lift that comes with the visits. They are looked forward and much appreciated, especially if the visitor has quarters :)
Happy Birthday to Micah and next week will begin the countdown for the last year, thank God!
