Happy Birthday Emma

Laundromat shoot

This birthday, this 26th birthday, seems like the biggest birthday so far.

Emma has many, many, many irons in the fire right now.
She is looking forward to graduation day in June.
She is looking forward to a less stressful time.

She is hanging on with all her might and courage....and all joy that she can muster.
She really is doing exceptionally well.

So on her birthday I wish for her lots of laughs and smiles and jokes and yummy things to eat.
I wish her eight hours of sleep and the peace that passeth all understanding.

I am beyond thankful that God gave this girl to us.

She is my best friend.

  2. That is so sweet, Donna.

    Happy Birthday, Emma! Praying for you and your last couple of months of school. I know you'll finish strong. You are the same age as my daughter, Rebekah, who was 26 last month. Like your mom - she's my best friend, too. I hope your day is full of all the things you love most. Hugs.

  3. Happy birthday, sweet Emma! God has blessed you with a precious gift, the love and devotion from your mom. May this coming year be filled with many many gifts from God.

  13. Happy 26th Birthday Emma! What a glorious age. Saw the first Best Marigold Hotel this weekend and this quote reminded me of you. "Everything will be all right in the end... if it's not all right then it's not yet the end."
    Sending hugs of joy and love and life to you and yours.
