Birthday GirlToday is my daughter Cathy's birthday. Days have gone by and the little children I used to know are adults. Now my daughter is a mother herself. How quickly the years pass. Cathy and I have a couple of strong interests in common: reading and knitting. For her birthday I sent her the novel "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini, about women's life in Afghanistan. Usually ranked at the top of the best seller lists, it is one of the best books I've read in a long time. We'll be celebrating Cathy's birthday with her next weekend.
