“Over the course of the millennia, all these ancestors in your tree, generation upon generation, have come down to this moment in time—to give birth to you. There has never been, nor will ever be, another like you. You have been given a tremendous responsibility. You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams for a better world. What will you do with your time on this Earth? How will you contribute to the ongoing story of humankind?” ~ Laurence Overmire

Happy Birthday Leila

Posted by Tonya Keitt Kalule

Today is the birthday of Leila McRae Jones who lives in San Francisco, California. She is my cousin that I discovered through less than a year ago. I called her this morning for her birthday and she was very surprised that I remembered. Well the secret is that her birthday is exactly one month before my mother's. Therefore I will never forget. I made the mistake of forgetting my mother's birthday once when I was in New York in college. Instead of October 4th I somehow thought it was the 14th, well you know the suffering that came from that. Needless to say it will never happen again.

I am making plans to go to San Francisco to visit her this month for a few days. This will be our first meeting. She is excited about about my visit. Her sister is also out there visiting her until the first week in October. So she wants to make sure I get there while her sister is still there.

Tonight her son is taking her out to dinner for her birthday along with her grandchildren and her sister. So I am sure that they are going to have a great time.

Happy Birthday Cuz!
