I just invited you to wish my mom a happy birthday. I didn’t ask you to make me cry! You guys are so sweet, and have the nicest things to say. Thank you for helping make my mom’s day really special. Sounds like I wasn’t the only one getting weepy reading your comments. My mom emailed me last night and asked that I post this note + picture. And, like a good girl, I honoring that wish.
I want to thank each one of you so much for the wonderful birthday wishes you sent my way! Each and every one of them were very special to me. I DO have an amazing daughter and I feel so very blessed to have her (as well as our 5 wonderful sons!). I DID indeed have tears in my eyes as I read what Becky wrote to me. And what a total surprise that was to find it there.
My husband and I returned a few months ago from our wonderful mission for our church in Finland. (BTW … I could totally write volumes about that wonderful experience and the wonderful people we call friends, but this IS Becky’s blog!!). We are currently serving another mission for our church in Alexandria, Virginia as volunteers in the National Council For Adoption office. We love the great work we are doing and meet so many wonderful people.
Today, for my birthday, we had the privilege of being escorts to a 20-member Delegation from China … all government officials. Visiting the White House was a part of that. It has been a very rewarding and fulfilling day. Kiitos Paljon……Me rakastamme sinua!!
Becky indeed has the best ‘friends’ in the whole wide world. Thank YOU ALL for being so wonderful! This is a birthday to remember for sure!
