A Birthday Wish

Today is a special day!
Happy Birthday Nel!!

When you were a baby, Mom used to sing this song to you and together you would dance.  It still reminds her of you to this day. 
Frankie Valli: Can't Take My Eyes off You
You are caring, (even for your little sister who used to get you in trouble ;-)
hard working,
and beautiful,
and you strive to make the world a better place.
May you enjoy an entire day as lovely as you are.  And may all your wishes come true.
~Jess and Sheri (Mom)~

Sheri ,

You asked what symbolic message carnations and roses convey. Depending on the color, they mean different things...carnations : pink-I will never forget, red-My heart breaks, striped- I cannot be without you, white-sweet and lovely, yellow-distain. Roses: burgundy- Unconscious, moss-Confession of love, orange-Fascination, pale peach-modesty, pink-Grace, purple-Enchantment, red-Love, white-A heart unacquainted with love, yellow-Infidelity.

Hello sweet Sheri!!!

Thank you my dear for coming to visit the DEEP sea with me! Oh to ride a white horse INTO the sea and come back transformed! OH to search the depths of life and come back a poet to tell about it......many hugs and thanks and DO TELL your daughter that if she wishes to speak French to just commit an hour a day to listening to French music/movies. READ and study the grammar and take a class where CONVERSATION is encouraged...then.....GO TO FRANCE!!!!!!!


Kristin said...

Happy belated birthday Nel! At our house, you get to celebrate your birthday all week so technically, it is still your birthday! Love your big bow but more important your big smile. I've been reading your blog since you got started and you have a big heart! This is a beautiful posting from your sweet mom!
