In the Blink of an Eye

This once cute little girl called home tonight and says "I'm calling to hear the story of my birth." A ritual routinely practiced each year the night before the girl's birthday at bedtime.

This year, on her birthday came the telephone request...with a sorority sister listening in.

Now the once cute little thing I helped create is a twenty-year old beauty.

In the blink of an eye.

Happy Birthday Princess A. You are loved!

Oh. my. Gosh! She is beautiful, Jodi!!!!

When Em was little and would lie in the dark, asking for me to lay down next to her and tell her the story of her birth, I would always start out this way...

"Well, it was Thursday--garbage day. And I heard the truck coming. It passed our house and soon it was making that Beep, beep, beep sound. You know, to tell you that it is backing up.."

And she would get all mad because I told her the garbage truck delivered her. Then we would laugh and I would tell her the real story.

Ah, good times. Happy Birthday to both of you. (I always say we both share that day together.)

Lin- Thanks. I am a bit partial though.

And. Our story starts, I went to the grocery store with your dad to buy the fixings to make burritos. Got home went into labor, ate the burrito anyway....
