A Day early but better early then forgotten ! I can't believe that ? number of years has past since you were laid in my arms for the first time ! What a shock it was to have a daughter after being told on more then one occasion that GIRLS just didn't happen in this family ! You have proved on more then one occasion that you can hold your own to any boy this family has :-) You arrived in this world in a hurry after 3 hours of labor and nothing was going to stop you or stand in your way ! You stood in the middle of the floor at 9 months and proudly walked across the floor - no thinking about it , no holding on to anything , no trial run around the furniture , you just did it ..... and have been on the run ever since !
You beat your older brother to getting a driver's license and bought your first car not long after thanks to a job slinging pizza at Pizza Hut ! You meet the man you are now married to and through trials and tribulations have carved a life for your family . Tears of sadness and tears of joy have been such a part of your family but you perserved and have made a wonderful life for yourself . Some days I think you wonder where your youth went in such a flash but then you look into the eyes of your beautiful children and your husband ( and that is where they got those beautiful eyelashes ! LOL ) and youth was just a passing fancy for bigger and better things .
The joys of raising a family and the heartache and the joy that comes with it , makes this time in your life something to treasure as we treasured your youth . Did we ever wish it had been different ? Always , but you can't change the past and we did the best we could . You were and are loved and treasured . Each day of your life has been a blessing to us ( as are your brothers ) , the grandchildren you have given us are the sparkle in our eyes and the smile in our hearts . We love you and wish a very happy , long life . Make the best of these years as this is what memories are made of ............................ You are our pride and joy ! Happy Birthday Dear Daughter and my best friend ! " A son is a son until he take a wife , a daughter is a daughter for the rest of her life "

- I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !
