My niece Ellen, age 15, is a gifted and gorgeous girl. As it turns out — though this comes as no surprise, really — she can act. Watching her in a skit recently made me so proud. In fact, all of them — Meaghan, Ben, Anne, Ellen, Carolyn, Eric, Celia and my daughter Caroline — are all gifted, lovely people. I feel blessed to be a part of their lives.
