Darling Daughter ...
Was born on Veteran's
Day. I used to tell her that a parade
was held in her honor outside the
hospital window. Well .. part of
that was truth. It just so happened
that the hospital was located on
a main thoroughfare and the parade
went down that street just hours
after she was born. I guess she
was anxious to see the parade because
she was born a mere four hours after
the first little birth pang.
Christy, I want
to tell you again how much I love
you and how much I'm proud of you
... and that's a BUNCH!
You're a blessing
and so precious to us and to our
Heavenly Father. You have stood
beside us and with us in good times
and hard times. You've been caring
and giving and generous. You have
shown how much you love us in too
many ways to count. We love you
Now it's time to
brag a little! Christy has completed
part of her studies to obtain a
Doctor of Pharmacy degree. She's
done so well that she was elected
Vice President and then President
of the Phi Theta Kappa at our local
She is also busy
with her own business. She has created
a product that competes with a well
known mineral make up. She began
to use that make up and her face
broke out so she researched the
ingredients and discovered that
there was a strong toxic substance
in the make up. So, being the enterprising
person she is, she gathered together
the ingredients to make the formula
for herself, without the toxins.
She was pleased with it and got
excited about sharing it with others.
She began to manufacture the make
up herself and now has a growing
business with customers all over
the world, who love her make up
Recently, her make
up was accepted as one of the gift
items for the nominees at this year's
Emmy Awards. One of our local television
networks picked up the story and
did a feature about her business.
In addition to her online sales,
her make up is now being featured
in local salons. She will soon have
to hire more employees in order
to meet the demand for her products.
She has the prettiest eye color
sets, blushes, foundations, and
adding new products all the time.
Christy also sings!
She comes from a musical family.
My father was a tenor in the style
of Mario Lanza and the Great Caruso.
I remember standing with him at
the record player, singing along
with him to songs like, 'Peg 'O
My Heart' and other popular songs
of the era. You probably know about
my singing ministry. Well .. Christy
followed in my footsteps with her
love of singing. People have told
her that she sounds a bit like her
Mom .. makes me proud, of course!
She couldn't pattern herself after
a better singer! (smiling as I write
Proud Moms Can't
God Bless You and Keep You Always!

This is the first
of many pages I plan to do as each
birthday rolls around for my family.
I love the idea of an 'internet'
birthday card! One that I can share
