Just A Twinkle In Her Daddy's Eyes...

only thirty-nine years ago.
Now, that twinkle has grown
into a wonderful, beautiful young woman.
Today begins her thirty-eighth year.

Melissa, my oldest daughter,  is a very warm and loving young lady.  She is  a wonderful mother to Jake.  A very talented lady, but she won't admit that...she's a tad like me...don't tell her.

I am very proud of my daughter, who makes a lot of lemonaide because life has served her lemons now and then. 

To my loving, wonderful daughter, Happy Birthday!!!  I love you, always have, always will...and may the new year be the best you ever had!!!

Happy Birthday Melissa. Daughters are wonderful beings. Sometimes they reflect the very best of us and those are the moments to relish. The moments when we see our own flaws in them make them even more loveable. Happy Birthing Day Gail....it's special for us as well. The Olde Bagg, Linda
