This week two very important events took place in the United States of America. The first closest to me and my husband was the birthday of our daughter, Sarah Marie Consentino Jackson, who was born on March 22nd. We will be gathering to celebrate her birthday this Friday evening but she and her husband Corey celebrated with friends on Friday evening of last week.
It is difficult to believe how quickly time passes! Thirty-one years ago at 8a.m. on a Thursday morning March 22nd, I was waiting to go into the operating room to deliver our beautiful Sarah by C-section. It was wonderful to see her as soon as she was born with her blond hair and beautiful blue eyes that have since turned light brown and hazel, respectively. Having great concern in the last trimester of my pregnancy because she had breached, it was a relief to see this beautiful little girl that the O.R. nurse quickly brought me as soon as she was born.
So yes, we are very blessed. We have two wonderful daughters to be proud of and two great sons-in-laws who are like sons to us forget the in-law business ;o)
We love you Sarah and we are looking forward to celebrating with you on Friday evening!

Congratulations to all Americans!
I did begin by saying two very important events took place in this country this week. The other event, monumental as far as I am concerned, was the signing into law the Health Care Insurance Reform Bill long denied citizens of this country. Having such a health care program for Americans is truly a right and not a privilege. It is time for the negative rhetoric to die out like ashes of a burning log. It has gone on too long and has been more hurtful to who we are as Americans than I can recall in my lifetime. Might the problem be ethnic rather that substantive issues? I believe that it is.
More to come on this!
