Today is my daughter-in-law Leah's birthday!! Ever since that day several years ago when Joe introduced Leah to me, we just clicked....we have always enjoyed a closeness and a friendship that goes beyond just a relationship that other lucky mother and daughter in laws share in my opinion...Over the years I have shared my heart with Leah and she with me, and I can truly say, we just plain get each other...

Leah is one of those rare people who has a heart and spirit that is both unselfish and giving. She has done sooo much for me over the years, giving of both her time and energy, I could never really count it all up...She encourages me, sympathizes with me, commiserates with me, waits on me hand and foot (at times haha), and I have come to depend on her as someone who is always there for me and that I can count on..

I feel Joe has been truly blessed to have had this young woman come into his life, and I thank God everyday that she did...She is a WONDERFUL wife to Joe, and a loving mother to their kids...She works hard and gets the job done whatever it might be...She has been a priceless addition to our family no doubt, but for me personally she has definitely been not only another daughter, but a real friend as well.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEAH.....and may the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine on you always and forever....


  1. Aaaaaah, Thank you so much. Not only have you been a mother and a friend to me on much needed advise, but emotionally and spiritualy as well. I love you with all my heart, and have been so blessed to have you in my life.

  2. Happy belated birthday Leah!!! Debbie, I like the new popcicle theme..Ya I do remember Jimmy. Deff. send me a link so I can hear him speak. It's crazy how God works it out so perfectly even when it dosent seem to be perfect at the time.I know how much I have grown in the lord this last 6 years, and what he has done in my life,but Im so excited to see where I am in 10 years from now. It helps me to know everything is out of my hands and in His. CraZy and comforting to know I was in your prayers when I did'nt even know I was being prayed for. Thank you! O' I love how you described putting kids to bed as heaving them into their histerical! It seems you have raised some pretty exceptional kids and I would love your advice where ever I can get it.

    1 week and 6 days till Melody comes to visit!!!Super exciting! Tell her I said Hi!



I am so glad that you would take the time to comment on my thoughts and feelings, it is such a blessing to me!
