Happy Birthday, Susan!
Today is Susan's 22nd birthday. We celebrated it a week ago, while she was still with us, and skyped her this afternoon. Nevertheless, Toronto is so far away! She seems to have had a pleasant enough day, with Greek pastries for breakfast, a trip to a street market with a couple of Canadian friends from the Classics department, and lunch at a Thai restaurant. For that I am grateful.
I remember the days when her birthday meant My Little Ponies, mermaid dolls, Stickies, and pinatas. God has been so good to give us the gift of this precious daughter. May He continue to bless her with life and health and opportunities to learn and grow.
