Happy Birthday Mary & John

February 11th
My second twins are 6 today. Oh my. Where does the time go?!
Happy Birthday little ones.
I had so many wonderful memories flooding back today, from the surprising news at my 20 week ultrasound to learn it would be twins again, to silly memories of the day you came into the world. My doctor (whom I swear didn't want to be late for his lunch engagement) insisted that wearing a hernia girdle would force you out sooner. As if 2 hours of labor was "lengthy." The nurse and I played along. I'm certain it didn't help, but he made his lunch date, and I had a lovely lunch in bed while you two were evaluated in the nursery.
Many prayersfor the intercession of the Blessed Mother were answered for your good health and safe arrival.
How wonderful that you would arrive on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
God is good!
