My mom has been saying for some time
that she will be "old"
when these babies turn 30:
We will hit that milestone
later this week.
I have a hard time seeing my mom as old.
I wish I were going to be hanging out with these two
on Wednesday.
At any rate,
I was just thinking today what good fortune it is
that these are the first two people I knew in this world.
30 years after arriving here
They're still two of my favorite people
and definitely two of the people
that have loved me most
and best.
Whenever I hear the line
"We all come into this world alone"
I smile
and think to myself,
"I didn't"
I'm tremendously grateful for that.
