I became a mother of a baby girl named Alice Isabella, who has been a joy and a wonder ever since!
Well, I guess since it’s after midnight it was really thirty-six years ago yesterday!
It was the day South Vietnam Surrendered and the news was full of those images, but there was really only one very important image in my heart, my little girl. Paul and I were filled with joy. She has been and is a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, friend, mechanical engineer, creative person, amazingly accomplished cook and artist when she has time. She’s thoughtful, observant, and intuitive. She supported us all during her Dad’s illness and death.
And she’ll say that whatever I say about her doesn’t count because I’m her mother, but I’m not the only one who says these things.
