Happy 25th Sweet Girl~

Wow...that one is hard for this momma to digest!  A quarter of a century.  REALLY?????  Not sure if it is her age or the fact that it means I am that much older.

This one has been a blessing from day one, our first.  A feisty go getter from day one!  The girl was running at nine and a half months for goodness sake.  That should have been our first clue.  Not to mention, she could talk up a storm and would engage anyone willing to listen.  Her dad would say she inherited that annoying habit gift from her mother.

I love that this one, despite a degree in Communications/Public Relations, a minor in Marketing and now a teaching certificate, still calls me MOMMY!!  I think it is quite funny that many of her current high school students refer to her as mom, mommy, mother, at the ripe old age of 25.

You continue to make your dad and I proud!  You are a beautiful example and role model to your students who so desperately need someone like that in their lives. Someone who truly cares and listens.

May God bless you richly this year sweet girl.  We always did say, go big or go home!

Mom, Dad, Kate, Kylee and Toby too!
