The New YEAR 2022

Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? Alvin and I are great.

This bright sunny blue sky day is the 42nd Birthday of my daughter Amanda. Sister to Alvin. Spouse to Steven. She also bears the titles of granddaughter, niece, cousin, sister-in-law, friend and artist. It makes sense that Mother Nature would turn on the brightness for this day as our girl brings the light and goodness to us and to the world, everyday. Hard to believe that this time forty-two years ago I was being prepped to have my first and only baby by planned c-section. My how time flies. I remember waking up in the recovery room anxious to meet my baby. Not knowing if boy or a girl. Surprised to hear that the boy was actually a girl but over the moon happy to have this little girl in my life. She brings us continued joy each and every day of our lives. I could not have planned or designed her better.

Amanda has always been the most kind, generous, gentle, patience, loving, understanding, compassionate human being I know. You add intelligent and artistic to the list and you have my daughter.

I have so many great memories of our live together thus far that I could fill a book.

She always made sure to share her toys with her cousins and friends. I remember her standing up to a bully on the school ground when she was a little girl protecting her friend doing what was right. To all the animals that she has helped rescue over the years, the amount is staggering. For her kindness to strangers. For her goodness to us all. This girl, this woman, I am proud to call my daughter. I think of how blessed we are to have her in our lives.

Alvin and I want to wish our favourite girl a very Happy 42nd Birthday. May your day and all the days ahead be filled with great joy, much love and laughter, continued good health and abundance. You are celebrating with the Hobbs family today so we shall catch up later for our celebrations. Amanda’s brother-in-law Dan had a birthday recently so they are celebrating together.

Happy Birthday Amanda

Love Mom & Alvin

Continuing to live this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, gratitude, focus and possibilities.
