It's Ruthie's birthday. She doesn't even think of herself as Ruthie anymore than I think of myself as Vicki. We've both outgrown our childhood names. She is two years younger than I was when she was born. SHE IS A MOM!!!!!! Last birthday with her and Chris was sad - honored but sad - just ten days after Mira died. Bob and I took them out to dinner. Tomorrow we will take them out to lunch and LIAM will be with us - live, sweet or grouchy, LIVE, present. I love you Ru-hoo. (You'll never outgrow that one) And I respect you immensely Ruth, wife of Chris, mother of Mira and Liam. You are a blessing every day.
