HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARI
Help me wish my Baby Girl Happy Birthday today as she turns 46!
Seems only yesterday at age 10 that she was fussing at me for giving her those home permanents. Why oh why did I do that? She has the most beautiful hair of anyone in our family but I always thought she should have curls! Oh gosh are we ever satisfied?
We celebrated early on Sunday her birthday along with Joe (her oldest son) as she is a nurse who works nights and has to work tonight so her hubby had a little family party for her Sunday and we will get together again on the 8th when she's off for another celebration. I tell you the birthdays in our family tend to go on and on and on. This was taken on Halloween as she was about to cut her cake.
So many many sweet memories of Shari but as a child I also have many bittersweet memories as she was such a humble child that she didn't want anyone to fuss over her or spend money on her. At the time when we'd begin our school shopping, she always reminded me that she could wear big sister Lori's old dresses. Imagine that. I tell you I don't know where she got that virtue but she never wanted!
And the most recent of things I like to share about my little gal is how my life was changed as she gave me the Bible Study by Beth Moore on Mother's Day two years ago of the study of Esther and since then we have had a bible study going constantly just the two of us and it has brought us closer to each other and so much closer to the Lord.
Shari is amazing as she juggles her time between being a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend and nurse. She has such great compassion for her patients and truly comes to life around children. She always thinks of others first and self last. Well..............almost last. But then again there is her bright red Mustang with the loud pipes and the tinted windows. I said ALMOST... You go girl!
Happy Birthday Shari....... I love you so much.
