I remember when I first heard it.
I remember when I first heard him call her, “Babe.”
That’s when I knew…this boy loves our darling daughter.
(And yes, he did eventually proceed to become our son-in-law.)
This past Christmas I heard that sweet word, “Babe,” being spoken, yet once again.
Only this time it sounded ever-so-sweetly British; and so it was, that once again I knew… this girl loves our devoted son.
She’s our very own modern day, St. Joan of Arc – which she appropriately chose as her confirmation name!
(See, I told you – she is simply brilliant!)
In celebration of her ‘special day of birth,’ I do so verily hope it was full of love and happiness – especially since she has given so much love and happiness to each of us!
To this extent, it is with the greatest of affection, I send out across these cyber-waves a sincere wish that her days’ always be simply BRILLIANT (in every way!)
I can’t wait to share some cake with her – with God’s help & a grateful prayer – it will hopefully be VERY soon!
hugs n’ blessings (always) to a very brilliant lady…and her devoted babe!
“I am not afraid…I was born to do this.” St. Joan of Arc
