When I saw the prompt to write a 6 word memoir of a significant time in your life I knew mine instantly.
“Would you like to hold her?”
I have heard this question three times:
As my oldest daughter took her first breaths in the world.
As my youngest daughter took her last.
And as my middle daughter was finally removed from her ventilator, to breathe on her own.
Reminding me to exhale.
And hold on.
