Ash Wednesday

I just realized it is Ash Wednesday, not a holiday of significance for me but it is the day I delivered Solomon. March 8, 2000 was also Ash Wednesday. When I delivered him, only Eric and my doctor were in the room with me. When all was done, I remember my nurse returning, she had gone to church on her lunch break. It's curious what gets remembered and when.

My daughter-in-law was in the hospital on Ash Wednesday after learning that her baby had died in utero. Someone (a chaplain) came in with ashes on her forehead asking if she wanted some too. She didn't know what it was all about but told me about it when I got to her and I realized what day it was.
