My idea of beauty...

I had a dream last night and in that dream I had a fairy godmother. My fairy godmother was going to grant me one wish...the chance to be my idea of a "beautiful woman." After much deliberation, I wrote out a list of qualities that make up what I think beautiful is...

1. a loving spirit

2. a joyful heart

3. a peaceful nature

4. great patience!!!

5. unending kindness

6. total goodness

7. great faith...

8. a sweet gentleness

9. lots of self control

10. and beautiful red hair!

Happy Birthday, Mom!

You are the example of the "fruit of the spirit" for me. I strive daily to follow in your footsteps. You have taught by example how to be a supportive and devoted wife, a loving and forgiving mother, a tender and fun "Grammy" and a beautiful child of God. I thank God for you everyday and love you very much!

Dear Michele,
My what a list! I feel very humbled that you see all of those qualities in me. And you want "red" hair, too? Thank you for your thoughts. I love you very much. Look forward to seeing you soon.
Love, Mom
