Happy Birthday Anna!

My very much beloved wife, Anna, is having a birthday today.

Thank you Anna for all the wonderful years you have loved me. Thank you for giving me my three daughters. Thank you for putting up with my starting my own laboratory and all of the years of extraordinary hard work, long hours, and depressed income. I love you dearly and I am counting on celebrating all of our many birthdays to come together.

Which means your mother has the same birthday as Kirsten's, Karen's, and Katie's mother.

Hi Josh,

I hope your mother had a great birthday yesterday. You did call her, right?

josh said...

haha yes I did call her, twice in the morning but she left her cell phone at her desk, but I finally reached her at night! My boyfriend and I came back home for her birthday dinner and then we took her downtown for a few drinks, it was tons of fun!

It is a very good thing to stay close with your family, at least most families. Too many people interested in Objectivism underestimate the value of family. In any case, mothers are special and it is great to be able to have fun with your Mom. I enjoy my Mom a lot.
