Happy Birthday, My Beautfiul Daughter!!

A happy day for me to remember that chilly winter day in Dallas, Texas!!  My husband was in the military and stationed on a battlefront and I was headed to the hospital to have our first child! We were blessed when she was born healthy and beautiful and she still is!!

So, when I sat down at my desk this morning I wanted to focus on the beauty of that day and not the sad things that have happened over the years. Her father died five years ago, she lives on the east coast so we don’t get to visit as often as we would like, but the beauty of having her a part of our family – with a younger sister and two brothers is worth all the celebrating that we can manage even though we’re spread all over the country now!!
But there is beauty that we can share every time  we are able to get together and we do and we will again soon!! These are the fun things, the lovely things that we can and will focus on!!






Happy, Happy Birthday, my dearest, Robyn!!

Very nice post. Families do seem to end up spread all over the place. I wonder what will happen to my two.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter Sylvia! It is hard when they move away. I'm still trying to adjust to my daughter and two oldest grandkids moving and it's been almost 3 years!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
