"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

Happy birthday to you
happy birthday to you
happy birthday dear Hillary...
and may Jesus bless you!

When a girlish giggle is traded in for a husband...what happened?
Where did the time go?
It's actually GREAT having an adult daughter...
the giggly girl was traded in for a grown up friend.

Have a wonderful day my daughter.  My friend.
(see you this evening, yippee!)

I love you, Mom

  3. Hi Debbie, happy birthday to your daughter. My boys both have birthdays next month and we have our anniversary so October is a busy one for us. Tanna mentioned your Soul Food post so I popped over to catch up with you. Back to school has really cut into my free time. :/ Bonnie's place looks like a fabulous place to spend time. Hope you have a great weekend. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  16. How I wish we lived closer so we could all share a bite of birthday cake together. I hope you have a wonderful weekend Debbie. I have to second what you said in your post. Having an adult daughter is one of the joys of motherhood.xx

  17. Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter!! Yes, it is a true joy to have an adult daughter who is also your friend. It is only equalled by having a not-quite-adult daughter who is also your friend. Or a child-daughter who is also your friend. Or an adult son who is also your friend. OK...I'll stop (probably because I am out of children to refer to).

    Really though, we are SO blessed!

    And Happy Birthday to you too...we moms celebrate these milestones with equal enthusiasm, don't we? Enjoy your celebration!

  18. So beautiful, the words and your daughter! I pray,by God's grace,I have a wonderful relationship with my four daughters when they're adults. I sure do enjoy them now and want to hold onto them at this age a bit longer. :)

    Happy Celebrating!

  24. Happy Birthday to your beautiful 23 year old! I have one turning that age at her next birthday, and I agree 100% about adult daughters. I couldn't have imagined that it would be as fun as having a LITTLE girl, but it is.
