September 16 is my father’s birthday. In fact, if he were alive, he’d turn 100 this year. His own father lived to be 96–I wish we’d had at least that many years with Daddy.
But I’m very grateful for those that I did have, and it made me happy to think about him throughout the day and remember great family times.
This is also the date we celebrate Margot’s birthday–in his honor and because she truly has a Virgo personality. As her birthday presents, she got lots of treats and I didn’t force her to sit for a photo.
