Today is my oldest daughter's birthday. She is away from me as she turns 23, serving with the Peace Corps in Indonesia. I remember the day she was born, just after Mother's Day when I was overdue with her and so anxious for her arrival . We didn't know if our baby was going to be a boy or a girl. It had been over 40 years since a girl was born on my husband's side of the family, so we were thanked many times when they heard the news. A joyful memory...and we got our boy two years later!
