Happy Birthday My Girl

Today is a very special day~33 yrs ago I gave birth to our first daughter, Carrie. From her earliest days until now, Carrie has been such a joy. I well remember friends who had babies at the same time as I did, asking if Carrie ever cried. As a child, she was the most loving big sister I'd ever seen-always wanting to mama her little sis, Kim. She is still an incredible daughter, sister, wife, mom, niece, friend and most importantly, woman of God. Her loyalty to her loved ones run deep; she is always there with an encouraging word or act of kindness. Underneath her calm exterior though she is a woman of steel; she can be strong willed when necessary but also the voice of reason.
This was taken in Sept.  at the grands birthday celebration.
Carrie is a true Prov. 31 woman; a knitter and crafter who loves to work with her hands.  Carrie received two gift certificates to a yarn store, she is wanting to make a big blanket that the entire family can snuggle under...these gifts will help buy the yarn.
Both our girls here-still the best of friends and although as different as night and day, their similarities become more apparent as they grow older.  This was taken last Memorial Day when the girls and their hubbies threw us a surprise birthday celebration.  It was a phenomenal party and several moms asked if they would organize wedding receptions. 
Carrie has always been there, a steady spirit that reminds me of the good and blessed things that each day holds.  Her dad and I are proud to call her our daughter, I am proud to call her my friend. In fact, both girls are my best and closest friends.
We love you Carrie and pray God's richest blessings on you today and for the future.
xxxooo Mom and Dad
