Cheers to your sister...

As if your optimism during deployment wasn’t enough... You truly know how to capture a feeling, (good or not so good!) and make it a wonderful experience in words.

Do I feel a book coming on? :)

Happy Holidays~

I'm sorry I am late in responding, I was going to call you last night but didn't realize it was your birthday this week. I'm still balling me eyes out from your tribute to your sister. See is always watching over you and I am sure she is so proud of the woman you have become and the wonderful mother we all espire to be. Happy Birthday! I miss you!

I traced back to you from your kind comment on my new blog...and found this wonderful, soulful, tough and tender spirit here, revealing your heart's rumblings with such beautiful words. Another person I do not know but will think about frequently. I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. So, so sad. Hoping your little E, big J and your family made your birthday a sweet one--a celebration of you.

Happy Birthday Crystal. I hope J. and E. help you celebrate yet another fabulous year...any excuse to wear cute shoes :)

Happy Birthday to Lora. I wish I could have had the honor to meet you...I have the feeling that we would have gotten along quite well. Crystal is lucky to have you watching over her.

Happy Birthday, Crystal!

Happy Birthday! I hope that this is your best year yet!

Happy Birthday to your sister too.
I hope the happy memories you have of her overwhelm you today!


You girls are indeed the BEST gifts God ever gave to me... thank you for this tribute to your sister, sweetie... and know that today I am celebrating YOU, the wonderful person you are and are becoming, the little baby that first made me "Mom."

Always, and in all ways,

Happy Birthday to you Lora, may the angels hear your sweet voice. She really seemed like such a beautiful and genuine person.

Happy early Birthday to you too Crystal, I know it's bittersweet, but you have been blessed with another year under your belt. You have a wonderful husband who's home safe and sound, and an absolutely adorable daughter.

In Christ,
