Happy Birthday, DQ!


She dropped into our lives one day - totally unexpected, but totally wanted and loved. We welcomed her with open arms and loving hearts, and here she will stay for all time. We are blessed by her smile, her sense of humor, her strong convictions to stick up for the underdog, and her loyalty to her family. Her smile is gorgeous, her spirit is untamed, and her faith is unwavering. She has been through some very tough times, what with the prejudice she experienced at a private school and her older sister's illness. Sometimes, she has been pushed into the background as other crises have taken my time and energy away from her, and for those times, I am truly sorry. But, I love her so deeply and profoundly, and I will always consider her my "baby".


Happy Sweet 16th, DQ! I hope this year is your BEST ever!

Happy Birthday DQ, and best wishes with the issues you've been struggling with lately. I don't know what those struggles are, but when I was 16 I was worried about everything. Ten years later I couldn't remember why I was worried... just have fun, be responsible and know that your parents love you.

Dear Friends; I have passed on your wishes to DQ, and all she could do was just smile. Thank you! We had a lovely weekend - a party with her friends on Saturday night, and a celebration with the family on Sunday. She's such a sweetie. . .

You're such a great mom! Did you know that my son is 15? I didn't know that they were so close in age.

Darlene - No, I didn't know that our kids were so close in age. I wish WE were close in age! :-)

Susan - I'll be over for a visit in a little while. . .

I dunno if you read this too- but if you do torment her. It's what every loved teenager should do. :)
