Happy Birthday, Aracely

Dear Aracely,

I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating your birthday! And I wish we could be there to help you do it.

We are grateful to have such a passionate and energetic woman in our family. You have enhanced Rich's life in so many ways, and we see why God brought you together. Your love for God and for people is an example to us, as it is to many others around you.

I, personally, am especially thankful that you are my sister-in-law. I know that when I'm with you, I will exercise whatever muscles are involved in laughing. And I LOVE that you love coffee. Know that I will drink an extra cup today in your name.


p.s. I wuv yo wed hayo!! :)

Happy Birthday, Husband

Wednesday was Mark's birthday! I'm a little slow getting this up here, but I wanted to honor him here.

Mark is a wonderful husband and father. He inspires me! I'm thankful for his humor, his gentleness, his unending forgiveness, his encouragement, and his love for God and his love for his family. I love you, Mark!
