A Day Generationally Special

My grandmother Jesse who I never met because the Spanish flu epidemic called her its own when she was twenty-six years old gave birth to my Aunt Thelma on April 7.  I gave birth to my daughter who I named after the grandmother I never met also on April 7 many years later.  I get it that millions of other people were also born on this seventh day of April but it's nice to know that my grandmother and I share the amazing experience of giving birth to a daughter.
Happy birthday.
