22 Years ago tomorrow God decided to gift us with a bright , sparkling jewel of sunshine.
We named her Katherine and have loved her ever since. Happy Birthday dearest darlin' girl!
We love you more today than all the yesterdays put together. Everyday God has granted us
with you has been a gift.
PS Thanks for the "hacking" . You are very kind.( and obviously I don't visit my pleo very often)
This is Kate, and I just wanted to say that my mother is an amazing woman and I could not have asked for a greater example...
"Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
'Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.'
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates."
Going with -it is always better to find humor in lifes "little dramas" ,let me tell you alittle story. After two full weeks of flu like sickness ,finally beginning to feel human, I go looking in the chest freezer for dinner ideas. Now keep in mind this freezer is normally plugged into an extension cord that runs under a rug across the laundry room to a socket on the far wall.(Yes I am aware of the "fire dangers" of that arrangement ,but its the only option.) So anyway I open the freezer and notice it isn't very cold right away, so I check the plug. It was dangling uselessly ,so I plug it in and return to the freezer to find dinner.Still fairly calm. Now once I start actually looking I realize there are two completely empty unopen boxes of icecream and an open sherbert (also empty) right on top. Calm begins to exit. This was followed by bags of warm chicken breasts, mushy hamburger and roast that is better left undiscribed. Next comes the fully risen yeast rolls in bags that look like one more minute and the whole room would be covered in dough. Well three bags of totally ruined food later we come to the bottom of the freezer. At this point I realize I have two inches of really nasty icecream / meat juice based slop beginning to refreeze.... because I plugged it back in. Craig quickly fixes that mistake. Kate being the best daughter ever born had been valiently aiding me in my fight with the beast. But as some of you are aware we are both alittle ....short. So eventually she ends up standing in the silly thing trying to clean it from the inside out. She looks at me and announces "We had a complete meltdown ,but its okay because we're both in agreement". This was followed with some reference to her being the "Ice Princess" (not the one from the movie) Now we are both feeling just a tad yucky.... washing ourselves may be required and for some odd reason both of us have cold feet.....And just for your information ,I am not making dinner . I am too worn out.... So how was your day?
Hello all, Thanks for all the birthday wishes.I read them when written ,even if I did take forever to reply. I'm at Rob and Becky's preparing for CFCBC camp. YAH!! I do love camp. I am almost as giddy as some of the kids. After camp I pick up Craig's mom and take her home with me so she can stay with Craig while I take Geoffrey to FC.I get three days recovery time from camp before the road trip to Florida. I am looking forward to that trip too. I don't really have any other news.So take care.
