I am sure all followers of this blog are eager to join me in congratulations to founder-member Angelo Bottone, whose wife Vicki gave birth to a daughter, Lucia, last night.
"The test of all happiness is gratitude; and I felt grateful,
though I hardly knew to whom. Children are grateful when Santa
Claus puts in their stockings gifts of toys or sweets. Could I
not be grateful to Santa Claus when he put in my stockings the gift
of two miraculous legs? We thank people for birthday presents
of cigars and slippers. Can I thank no one for the birthday present
of birth?"-- Chesterton, Orthodoxy.
