Happy Birthday, Alexandra!

Thirty-five years ago today this Boomer gave birth to a beautiful, 10 pound baby girl in the middle of a snowstorm! Richard took me to the hospital for 7 am January 21st and Alexandra arrived after 7  the next morning! He actually read the whole of Tolstoy’s War and Peace throughout my labour. I, on the other hand, experienced 24 hours of war followed by blessed peace when Alexandra finally made her debut into the world. So freezing cold and snowy was it that morning that Richard could not get his car started and so had to walk home in the frigid conditions. But it was all worth it! Alexandra has brought us tremendous joy and we are so proud of her! Happy Birthday, Alexandra!
