So Sunday night was the birthday party. The location was Cucina de Pesci, 2nd and 4th in the Village. Our friends came, his friends came, we united in a party effort that the two birthday boys will always remember. Toasts, party hats, German Chocolate from Magnolia Bakery, red wine, white wine, red wine, and friends. The best friends you could ever want, the friends of a lifetime.

I remember the birthdays with little boys on treasure hunts all over the house, steak and really good red wine with our friends in the dining room, and everything and nothing in between. So much falls away when I try to remember the past twenty years, year by year, but so many new layers appear and reappear, creating a crazy patchwork of quilt that wraps its warm and soft arms around and about me. Trust the past to God's mercy, the present to God's love, and the future to God's providence. St. Augustine. Imagine a poor Presbyterian like me getting this stuff for free.
