Let Them Eat Cake

This morning I received a much welcome phone call from my sister.  My 4-year-old niece Ila asked to speak with me.  She immediately said, “Hi Auntie I miss you so much!”  I assured her that I miss her too and that I think about her every single day.  Her 5th birthday is coming up on May 13th.  She asked me if I was going to come to her birthday party.  I told her that I wouldn’t be able to make it to her party this year, seeing as I live in California and she is in Ohio, but that I would see her for the 4th of July.  I told her that when all the fireworks are going off, that I will be with her.  She then said, “Alright.  I’ll save you a piece of my birthday cake!”

And this is why my niece Ila Rose is the greatest person ever to walk this planet.
