Cutting the birthday cake

Yesterday was my mother’s 90th birthday, a special day of remembering, celebrating and enjoying my family. Tom and I are privileged to be able to be in Sydney for this wonderful occasion. Celebrations like this are so important. They not only connect us to the past and the rich heritage that our families provide for us, they also connect us to the future and the hopes that we have for the time that is to come.

Happy Birthday to your Mum! We all celebrated my Dad’s 90th birthday 2 years ago. If he was still here on earth he would be 92 this July 4th. Your family is beautiful! Your cup runneth over with blessings from Our Lord.
