It is my Mom-in-law's birthday.

(January 21st)

The past year has been filled with many deep valleys and some pretty incredible mountain tops. Between her radiation treatments last spring and summer for breast cancer, my illness and surgery last summer and my father-in-law's on going battle with cancer, our family has had some rough days, during the past year. But in between the "not so fun times" were some really happy moments too. Like the fact that her and Papa celebrated "50" years of marriage,
last August.

I just wanted to take this time to tell Grandma "Happy Birthday" and "Thank you."
Thank you for all the little things you do for all of us. Thanks for being strong and keeping the faith during the "storms" of life. Thanks for raising a son with a great big servant's heart. Thank you for being a loving and caring grandma to my two kiddos, even on their "unlovable" days. Thanks for being a wonderful mother-in-law.

I pray that you have a beautiful birthday.

I love ya!
