Because today is my dear Alain's birthday, I am posting this picture. It was taken in 2009. A few months ago, when Tia Jenny and I were talking, I asked if she might have a picture of Ygal & Alain that we haven't seen before. She sent this one. I've been sitting with it since then knowing that I would like to surprise Alain with it for his birthday. I could spend millions on other presents (if I had it ~ which I don't!) and I know it wouldn't mean an inkling as much as getting this photo for him. Tia Jenny, thank you.
Alain, wishing you a Happy Birthday seems, I don't know, silly. This has been the hardest year of your life. So the girls and I will simply wish you a better year to come and we want to let you know that we've got you. We will hold you up for as long as you need. Our love and adoration for you knows no bounds. Happy 41, my love. Mi corazon. I know that every day I have you with me is a gift and I am forever thankful. I love you!
