Mary and Jocelyn turn seven today. I remember the day the twins were born, and how much joy our family felt. Jocelyn was the smallest and had a few problems at first, but she quickly recovered.
When she was a toddler, Mary broke her femur and was in a half-body cast for weeks. That was a tough time. Both girls are now healthy and strong … swimming and playing soccer and basketball and tee-ball. They love school … and parties.
Mary is very considerate of others and considers herself a “fashion girl”. Jocelyn is more interested in crafts and writing in her diary. She wants to begin a scrapbook.
They are tough to tell apart, but each is developing her own personality … and it’s fascinating to watch.
We have seven grandchildren … each one special. The twins get a bit more attention sometimes, simply because they are twins, and that’s unusual.
Being their “papa” is a joyful experience. Happy birthday, girls.
