Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen!

Emma is sixteen today!
She delights in getting older! She has so much to look forward to; independence, new experiences, fashion, fun!

I know hardship builds character...but I won't wish that for her.
(Character building comes without wishing)

I wish for her carefree days, true friends, family-love, deep faith and interesting adventures.

And laughter. Lots of laughter.


I remember being sixteen...very well.
Life was not carefree for me anymore...but I had everything else!

These are the things that helped me weather the hardships along the way.
All three of them.
Without faith...well, forget it.
Without family...loneliness...
Without fun...dreary my deary.

A cheerful heart is good medicine...
Proverbs 17:22

So party on dudes! Be excellent to one another :o)

Celebrate! (good times, common)

And Cathy R. if you happen to read this, my childhood friend...Happy Birthday to you too, sweetie :o)

Donna (Mom)
