A Day To Remember

Forty-two years ago today was a day that changed my life forever.  Our sweet son, Mr. J., entered the world and our lives - and we've never been the same since.  He brought such joy and things we never dreamed possible to our family.  We are so proud of the way he has grown up - the way he has led his home and family, the caring father he has become - but most of all, the way He loves and serves God with his life.
Happy birthday, dear son.  You forever changed my life!

Then, as if that wasn't enough, God did something else very special on this day eighteen years ago.  We became grandparents to the sweetest girl in the world!  Our lives changed again in ways we  could never have imagined.  Our dear Miss A. was born on this date - sharing a birthday with her uncle.  It was like God added frosting to the cake of life!  Today she is a great young lady with hopes and dreams and plans for life.  We are very proud of her and can't imagine what life would be like without her.  Happy birthday to our sweet oldest grandchild - our first granddaughter!

  4. Happy birthday to your son and granddaughter. Doesn't it always seem a little amazing when family members share birthdays? Our daughter shares her Uncle's birthday, and a niece shares her Aunt's birthday, so we have had some fun family birthday get togethers :)

  5. I hope they both had a great day celebrating the gift of life. How neat that they share a birthday! I hope you were able to spend some time with one (or both) of them. My son and mom share a birthday.
