Happy Birthday Nicole!

Today is Nicole’s 40th birthday! We wish she lived closer so we could see her and the grandkids more often, but she’s living where she wants to live. That’s one clue to the independent and strong woman that she really is. Through lots of life experiences she has learned how to be a survivor. I’m really proud of her because she demonstrates so many great qualities such as compassion, love, and hard work. Though she’s had some trials she never gives up. We seldom talk to her when there aren’t moments of laughter and joy. Nicole has never has a shortage of friends because she is someone that people enjoy being around. I hope it won’t be too long before we see her and the grands again (it can’t be too soon!).  We love you Nicole! Hope you had a happy birthday and many more to come!
