Happy Birthday, Laura


November 17 is my oldest daughter Laura's birthday. She is 26 years old and I'm not sure where those years went! It seems such a short time ago that we were being told - "It's a girl", followed by "she has red hair!" I was 21 when she was born and although I thought I knew it all, I really didn't! She says she was our test case. If so - she turned out great! (I must admit, we learned a lot along the way) Somehow she survived having us as parents and has grown into a caring, responsible Christian women. Laura - Dad and I are so proud of you, and we love you lots! Happy Birthday!

Seems like we were just graduating from high school and now our daughters are getting way too old!

Laura must have turned out much like her mother, caring, responsible and a great Christian woman.

Hope her birthday was great!
