Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Blog Talkers #55

Please share your best birthday memory. Now, please share your worst birthday memory.

My best birthday memory is when my friend DeeDee came over and did all my dishes. We lived in Flagstaff at the time with a newborn and an almost 4 year old. The apartment was tiny, with almost no counter space, and dishes tended to pile up. She let herself in while I was out with Konal, and washed, dried and put away every dish. It was a wonderful sight to behold when I came home.

My worst memory is hard to pick from. There was the morning my now ex found a scorpion on the wall of our apartment when I was 8 months pregnant. There was the birthday where I miscarried my youngest son's twin. There were numerous major medical incidents and tests on my birthdays.

I always celebrate getting older. It is proof I have survived another year.
