The older we get, the less important our birthdays become. They are a great excuse to have family and friends around, to enjoy a home cooked meal and to have things our way. I can tell you all, that more than anything in the world, all Leah wants for her birthday is to be at home, having the most usual, uninteresting, regular day. No party, no presents, no cake; just her two baby girls and her every day routine. Including myself, we tend to take for granted our most boring, yet potentially memorable moments.
Leah, you deserve a wonderful birthday, and I’m sorry that it must be at the hospital. You have never, even slightly, been a selfish person, and this is no exception. You are such a caring mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I hope that your birthday is special and that we can all be at home together soon. You are so loved.
