Happy Birthday, Jamie on your 18th birthday. That old cliche "hard to believe" is so true. Seems just yesterday your Dad called to tell us your mother and his son were doing just fine - and that they were naming you James - for Jim. What a gift!
You were not our only gift that day. We received your Dad's call at George Washington Univ. Hospital where Grandpa was in the Recovery Room - waking up from some pretty serious surgery.
You and your being his namesake were two wonderful gifts for him when he woke up.
There is more to that story - ofcourse - but the main thread is our two James were fine!
Three Beautiful Things
1. Jamie's 18th birthday, ofcourse.
2. Seeing Claudia Vess's art show at Gallery 10 - great job Claudia.
3. A rapt audience of seniors for my Stories for Seniors gig this afternoon- not wanting to leave when it over.
