My Daughters Have the Same Birthday!

Happy Birthday Jessi & Erin!!!

No, they aren't twins, but they were born on the same day!  Just one of those things.  When they were very young, we would have 1 birthday party for them both...that worked for a while.  Then we had to have separate parties, because it was no longer fun for them to share.  Then as adults we began gathering to celebrate their special day together again.  Tonight, they will both be celebrating independently with their friends.  Funny how things keep cycling around.

This day in history is one of the very best days of my life...twice!  I find myself joy-filled and emotional when I think back on the details of birthing each of them.  There are few events my life that compare to the moment each of them were born and then being able to hold them, immediately, skin to skin, for the very first time. The sweetness of each of those instances is incomparable!

Here we are, 26 and 30 years later, and I could not be more proud of the beautiful grown women they have become, inside and out.  How time has flown!

Happy Birthday to each of you ladies...may your blessings be many and your troubles be few!  You both have been and always will be a blessing to me!  

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
