The Twinnies Celebrate A Birthday ~ by Gabby


Yes indeed we twinnies were born January 15th. Being twins, we never knew anything else but having to share a birthday. It was just fun and a nice thing, in case nobody else ever remembered we could wish each other a “Happy Birthday“! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย Our birth was such a trauma to our poor Mom, she will never forget of course.ย An emergency c-section, Autumn and I were delivered only a minute apart. We all could have really not survived, so that is a blessing we all made it!ย I am the one who is a minute older, not that it’s ever beenย lorded over Autumn’s head. Seriously, Iย haveย ย never gloated about the one minute thing, (I think). ๐Ÿ˜‰

What a start to parenthood for our Mom and Dad…Twins, a little double blessing we were. At least that is the story we got told, how exciting it was to find out it wasn’t one baby but two! We had grandparents, aunts and uncles who looked forward to our birth, too. It’s a nice feeling to know we twinnies were so welcomed.ย To think, we never gave Mom and Dad one problem or woe or cause for headachesย after that…OK, that is a total fabrication I admit. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hear tell we were quite a handful, charming and cute…But also very muchย double the trouble at times.

Anyway, it was an exciting day for all…January 15th and it kind of went down in history, too. Not us twinnies, I am referring to Martin Luther King! What an honor to share his birthday…Such a man of peace and wonderful thoughts, dreams and inspiration to many. It’s just very sad how he was gone too soon and with such tragedy…I am happy he has his own special holiday. Celebrated of course on Monday the 16th of January, may he be remembered forever!

Anyway, birthday thoughts…Autumn and I are grateful to be here yet another year of course. We haveย always celebrated together, it’s been a tradition since the start and it’s always fun.How old are we? As Autumn nicely put it…Still a couple years away from the dreaded decade. Age is really is only a number after all, isn’t it?ย So, there you have it…Another birthday for the twinnies and hopefully a very good year! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Happy Birthday to you both! โ™ซ โ™ซ โ™ซ I hope you are having a grand celebration! I love your story and how you were no trouble, only charming and cute! ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with you, age is only a number. I’m actually happier turning 50 than I thought. There is some sort of freedom that I feel, but I’m not quite sure how to explain it. So, whatever decade you’re nearing, just enjoy another year of life! You both spread sunshine wherever you go or wherever you write and that’s what makes the world go ’round! xx

We are actually only a couple years away from you now, but it’s only a number!
