Happy Birthday Holly!!!!

Holly is celebrating her birthday today!!!

Happy birthday to a great friend...

Holly and I met over 20 years ago at Circle Square Ranch in Sussex, NB.

She was a camper and I was her councillor....though there isn't THAT much of an age difference between us!

We kept in touch for a couple of years, but as time marched on, our summer camp days ended, as did our contact with one another.

Around 8 years ago, God brought us back together in Belleville, ON.

Married now, with children, we reconnected and have become very close friends and have enjoyed watching each other's children grow and become great friends as well.

Holly is a special lady.

She is SO quick with a word of encouragement.

I consider her my personal intercessor...as soon as Holly knows I am to speak or am being stretched in any way, she is first in line to pray....and support in any way she can.

In a world where women can be so full of jealousy and envy, Holly will go out of her way to make you feel special, beautiful, important...

As My husband and I don't have family nearby, Holly has stepped in to help out, or stay with our children...including during Jianna's birth 5 years ago.

Next week, Holly and her wonderful family will fill in for us again.

They will move into our home for a week, to allow Mark and I a romantic - get - away in West Palm Beach, Florida.


THANK YOU HOLLY
for all that you do, but more importantly, for all that you ARE!!!!

A Godly woman and amazing friend.

Have an Awesome Birthday!!!!!!!

Ahh...thanks! I am blessed with great friends...and a great family too!

I am so looking forward to a special supper at my parents place this evening...lasagna, salad, garlic bread and a surprise dessert that Shaun has made me. He does this every year and I love it! Always something very fancy and usually something chocolate.
