Georgia on My Mind

10 Jan

This weekend Dr. B and I drove up to Savannah, GA for my sister-in-law’s surprise 40th bash. It was such a wonderful event, she had absolutely no clue what was going on.  It was something short of a miracle that no one gave away the surprise.

My sister-in-law is like a my blood sister to me.  I admire her, and I’m motivated by her.  She is a very beautiful person inside and out.  Over 100 friends and family came out to celebrate of birthday, but also to celebrate the wonderful, loving, and caring person that she is!

She has weathered many storms with grace, faith, and no complaints, while at the same time helping and encouraging others. She is a great person and wonderful friend!

When she first walked into the banquet hall, look how surprised she is!

I Got the Gift

It’s your birthday,
but I’m the lucky woman
who got to be with you for another year.
It’s your birthday, and the older you get,
the more wonderful you become.

It’s your birthday,
and I’m privileged to share the years with you.
It’s your birthday, and each year
I find the depth of my love for you growing.

It’s your birthday, and I look forward with joy
to each day we spend together.
It’s your birthday, and I wonder how I got along
for all the birthdays I didn’t know you.

It’s your birthday, and it’s amazing
how easy and enjoyable it is to be with you each day.
It’s your birthday, and no matter what fate has in store for us,
I know it will be a pleasure to spend life with you.

It’s your birthday, but I got the gift–
You in my life for another year.


Your Wife,
