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.

Those are very special times.
The times with our children and grandchildren are priceless.
Time is going by so quickly. Enjoy the day. My first two children are 17 months apart..
