August 15, 2010 The Birthday
August 15, 1970 2:08 PM, Brian was born.
August 15, 1974 2:18 PM, Kevin was born.
Now if you are paying attention, that was exactly 4 years and 10 minutes difference in their ages...
So, now it seems, Brian is FORTY YEARS OLD!!!!! Man, can I add or what? This year brings me to ponder and reflect on my life, their life, but, I really thought about Brian. He did not want a lot of fanfare about his birthday for some reason, and I respect that. However, it is a big deal to his mama. I wanted to do something special for him. He made that easy by requesting Pepper Steak for the birthday dinner. Just like I cooked it when they were little. I even had can green beans because that is what I served with Pepper Steak, that and rice. I thought this through very carefully and had Brian in the kitchen with me when I made it, so he could learn how it was done....clever, aren't I? I explained the steps, and afterward he said, Awe. Yep, it is that easy. I stepped back a bit, and let the chef do his job. I got the pleasure of being with my son. That is all a mother ever really wants.
