Monday's Child is Fair of Face

In a family of 6 children, what are the chances that all of them would be born on a Monday? Well in our family, my 2 sisters, 3 brothers and I were all born on a Monday! Plus, my older sister, Dianne, and my younger brother, David, share the same birthday - November 14th!

I was always jealous of my sister because she got a baby brother for her birthday - how do you compete with that? I did receive a baby doll once, but it just wasn't the same. On the other hand, she always had to share a birthday cake and party, whereas my birthday was all mine. I guess it all works out one way or another.

Here are a couple of pictures of my sister and I when we were sweet little things. She is 18 months older than I am and I have always looked up to her.

We have always been close, especially when we were growing up. We often shared the same school, friends, clothes, etc. Dianne has a heart of gold and always gives without counting the cost. She is a planner, an organizer, a faithful woman of God, a fabulous dessert maker, a great story teller, a talented home decorator, and the best friend anyone could ever ask for.

My brother David is also a wonderful person. He was my little buddy when we were growing up, always full of energy and mischief! I remember the many long talks we had when we were in high school and university - mostly about life and faith. He is now a brilliant and compassionate psychologist who works with engaged and married couples.

Happy birthday to both of you! May God bless you and keep you always in His care.
