Happy Birthday To Us

The only birthdays that I have celebrated alone, took place in my first 3 years of life. The day after my third birthday, my sister came into our family and then the combined birthday parties started.

Fast forward 30 some years and I woke on my birthday, 4 days from my due date, and went to my scheduled OB/GYN appointment. I was sent right to the hospital and 4 hours later we welcomed Benjamin John into our family.
