Happy Birthday Daughter!

            Thirty one years ago the Lord blessed your Dad and I with you, our beautiful daughter.

You, Emily, were always so full of vim and full of life. After all you weren't going to let those two older brother think you couldn't keep up with them! Remember when I took this picture? You had just
gotten your cast off and had to have crutches. All at the ripe age of four years old!
Oh my, I even loved terriers back then. I think this might have been the last year I was able to chose your wardrobe for the Christmas program. For some reason you developed a dislike of my choice of cutesy sweaters!
Then came your first school dance. I know I hated that you wanted to cut your lovely long hair and straighten it. But you looked just beautiful with it your way. I was beginning to learn.
Then before I knew it seven years had passed and you had become the mother of a precious     daughter of your own.

I know this photo is two years old, but it's the last family picture I have.
Hint, hint.
Now your Dad and I join you in praying that you can return to your roots.
That your children can learn to drive on the roads you drove on.
That your children can play on the beaches you played on.
That you and your family can visit the falls where you and your friends had so much fun playing.
And hike the trails with them that we all hiked together.
Oh my, I think I'm going to get teary here....
Well, Em we love you and your sweet family
and we too praying that you will see the
realization of your dreams.
Happy 31st Birthday!
