Happy Birthday Laura!



It's my daughter Laura's birthday on Saturday.  She's going to be 30 and has been saying it sounds so old.  I asked her - "How do you think it feels to be the mother of someone who's 30?"
Well, aside from feeling a little older and wondering where those years went, I feel blessed!
I've been blessed with a daughter who is smart and sweet.  She's loving and talented.  She's a wonderful daughter, wife and mother - and I think Heather and Andy would agree that she's a pretty great sister too.
I'm thanking God for one of the greatest gifts He ever gave Bob and I!
Happy Birthday Laura!

Happy Birthday to your daughter and a mom to mom hug to you. A daughter is a wonderful blessing even though there were times and still are (though rarely) when more grey hair sprouts!:>)
That's a lovely family pic.

Girl I couldn't believe it either the day Stephanie turned 30. And now she's 32, and Audrey will be 30 in March. I guess that makes me a mature woman. But tell Laura, I remember my 30th birthday as the only one that gave me any trouble. I was just so depressed that day. Now, what I'd give to be 30 again! I think. Anyway my point is, at any given moment you're as young as you're ever going to be in this life, so you might as well enjoy it to the hilt. With that darling husband and adorable baby, as well as all of her wonderful family, that should be easy for your Laura! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR LAURA!!

She indeed is very special- but then look at her mom :) For that matter all your kids are pretty special!!

Laura said...

Thank you everyone for your sweet messages! Even 10 years ago I would never believe how blessed I would be when I turned 30. Although I'd like to stay in the 20's, I know there's much more fun to come!

And thank you Mom for your sweet post - I would be none of those good things you mentioned if it weren't for your hard work! :)
