Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson


A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

My precious little girl just turned 21! Oh my...the time flies too quickly! My husband and I celebrated by taking her to dinner at one of our favorite places...Nick and Sam's Grill. I am so proud of the young woman she has become...she is my middle child and the only girl and I ADORE her! She is my best friend and I might be a little bias but I consider myself the luckiest mom in the world to have such an amazing child!

Happy Birthday darling girl...we both love you VERY much!

Lots of Love!!!

Cathy
