9/11

Who do you need to be grateful for today? Nine Eleven has a way, each year, of reminding us to be thankful for those we love the most.

In my case it is my wife, Laura. She is my favorite person on the planet. After 25 years of being married to her, I still feel blown away that I get to go home every day knowing she will be there.

When I go home today, my girls and I will have a party for Laura, because it’s her birthday.

I suspect there is someone who deserves a party in your world today too. What if you decided to go for it and celebrate this person, whether it is their birthday or not?

You might have more days with the person you love, but you will never have this day again.

Make the most of it.

Happy Birthday Laura!

i2i,

Randy

Who needs celebrating in your world today?

Also, feel free to write a birthday wish for Laura & I will pass it along.

I love to throw surprise parties for Nancy. The problem is she hates them. So I have only done it to her 3 times in our marriage… I am so thankful that God brought her into my life… I think this weekend calls for a date…
I have a friend whose wife was suppose to be in the pentegon. The conference room was on an outside wall right in the middle of where the plane hit. The day before 9/11 she canceled a meeting so she could spend 9/11 at home with their daughter on her birthday. Needless to say Oz, my friend, thanks God for a birthday every year…
Here is to those we love…
Thanks Randy,

I should have posted this yesterday, but I never stopped to write a wish for the Birthday girl (I did text and call her, though).
Happy Birthday to the precious gal my brother brought home to meet us, shortly after I started high school. I was the goofy teenager who kept you up late, asking “Do you like beets” and you were the gracious college gal who was likely annoyed by your future sister in law…yet, out of kindnes – I’m sure – you laughed as hard as I did!
Laura, you have blessed me in more ways than you can imagine…you’re the sister I never had, the friend I can always count on to pray for & encourage me, the mother to the four beauties who call me “Aunt RHONDA”, and one of the most talented gals I’ve ever met.
You’ve been the perfect wife for RG – the one who keeps him balanced and you’re an excellent example of the Proverbs 31 woman – something we’d all like to be compared to. I am so blessed that God chose you to be my sister-in-love. I hope your birthday was as wonderful as you are!
Love you!
