Right now, because so many of us need to know, or remember, that miracles do happen—I want to share that my daughter, Jennifer Strulowitz, is living proof. 45 years ago today, she was born three months prematurely, at 2 lbs. 3 1/2 oz.—dropped to 1 lb. 15 oz.—and was given less than a 5% chance of survival.
Today, she has a smile that can light up a room, boundless compassion, and is an Outsider Intuitive Visionary Artist who says on her website below, "I am extremely honored that some of my works can be found in private collections around the United States, alongside works by celebrated artists who include: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Ed Paschke, and Lee Godie."
This is NOT to brag about my daughter, and NOT to advertise for her. It is to remind us that, as David Ben-Gurion once said, "Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles is not a realist." To remind us to keep celebrating life. And to say Happy, Happy Birthday, gorgeous girl!
