Happy Birthday

Nineteen years ago — at this very time, by the way — my daughters Annie and Pearl were born. Annie was born first, at 6:40, if I remember right. Then Pearl, at 7:06.

“To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each others’ hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.” – Clara Ortega

Happy birthday, girls. I’m so glad I have you in my life, and I’m so glad you have each other.

  1. Clara Ortega speaks the truth about families. I loved her words and you know I love and treasure Annie and Pearl, Emma, not to be forgotten this day either, the surprise who came to you and Bruce so unexpectedly when you thought you were finished with babies and toddlers – another miracle.
