Ja må hon leva

Has it really been twenty-four years ago today that I dressed in a sterile gown and held a pair of surgical scissors at the St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, preparing to cut her umbilical cord?

What came into my life that morning sure beats anything 
I ever got on my birthday!  

It's ironic. When a new life comes into your own you utterly and irrevocably lose the life you lived just moments before.

But the life you have now is so much better, you can't even remember the old one.

Tempus fugit. Take lots of pictures. 
And Happy Birthday, darling.
