"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"!

She is woman hear her roar









Did you read it on the cake?  On the card?  Eighteen.  Apparently I no longer have to sign for her, she can just do whatever she wants.  Eighteen.  I have every reason to believe there's nothing to worry about.  She makes good choices.  She even still values my advice.  Have I covered everything she needs to know?  Can she really do this without me?  Eighteen...

Happy birthday to my... woman?  I really, really want to say my baby girl...

..and thank you, thank you Mindi for the time spent coloring brown dots for pink balloons so they would match the tables!  Your OCD is my personal friend.

Blessings, Debbie

  3. I love the gifts she received! They are gifts that are very untypical of what an average American eighteen year old would want; that's why I love them! Looks like a beautiful get-together!

  5. Happy birthday to Erin! They grow up quickly. I wanted to comment on your post yesterday, but our internet was pokey. Just wanted to say, I'm happy that you discovered what you needed to feel well again.

  6. What a beautiful woman she is too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Erin. My baby is turning 39 in August and I still call her my baby. I'm the only one allowed to call her that though.

    I couldn't notice that she is wearing one of my favorite Motto on her shirt. Just Do It. Way to go Erin...
    She's getting a lot of presents because she deserves it and she's loved.
    Great job on the party.

  19. I read this several days ago, I knew I needed to hop back over here and comment...beautiful daughters with birthdays in May. My own sweet one turned seventeen on the 8th. Your "baby girl" has developed into a charming and beautiful young lady. (I still prefer to call women, ladies, whether young or old...)

    So glad you are back and feeling better!

    And I gotta say, those hand-dotted balloons are awesome!
