A very special person…

I may have mentioned a time or two or three how I hit the jackpot with In-laws.

No? well, I hit the jack pot with in laws.

Coach’s Mom has a birthday on Friday.

She reads the blog on occasion, to see what we are up to. She recently upgraded to a laptop and has wireless service at her lake house…So, I hope she reads this!!!

For Sue’s birthday ..

Thank you for being a wonderful friend to me, from day ONE.

Thank you for being so patient, kind and ALWAYS available to us and the girls.

Thank you for setting such a great example of being such a giving person…all the time.

Thank you for not holding it against us for moving to Texas on your birthday way back in 1991. (you have forgiven us? right?)

Thank you for thinking that I am a very patient Mother.

And mostly,

Thank you for raising a wonderful son who is a fantastic husband and devoted father.

It is all because of you, that I now have this amazing family. Yes, you.

Happy Birthday!!! We love you!!!

I wish for you a great day and a fantastic year to come!
