I had planned a column about Abraham Lincoln this week because it is nearly his birthday (201 years) and he was born here after all.
But a monumental event occurred a few days early that overshadowed any thoughts of our 16th President. He’ll have to wait another week.
Friday, my daughter Amanda gave birth to my second granddaughter after a relatively short labor. At least it was much shorter than Amanda’s labor with her first baby.
I was exhausted afterwards. Birthing babies is hard work.
