Both my children and I were born in April. My daughter is 5 and born on april 10th 2006 12 days before my April 22nd birthday. Now my son was born April 27th 2010 5 days after me they were the best gift i couls ever hope to get. Does the date April 27th ring a bell? My Mason's 1st birthday is the date of the deadly tornado outbreak here in the south. I was at work that day and saw the monster tornado headed right for my building. I just thought to my self is this what my husband will have to remember? The mother of his children lost on his sons's birthday? The tornado got so close that even taking the picture from the back of the store it still would not fit in the screen. It had 4 tails on it. It somehow just backed up and turned going straight thru our historical town demolishing everything it touched. No one was hurt during that round of storms that day but it will always remind me that my April babies are my little miracles. Even after the power was out for almost a week we had a wonderful birthday dinner in the dark after I finally made it home hours after I left work. It is a wonderful thing to remember but even better to hold on to what you have.
