Last weekend was my step mom's 50th birthday. My sis and SIL and I got together to throw her a birthday party. We decided to honor her by reading Proverbs 31 over her in front of many of her friends and family. We chose a frog theme because her life's slogan is "Fully Rely on God". She is an avid speed walker and this verse has sustained her through many tough races. Stacie and her friend, Kim made these cupcakes, I got to help a little too. It was fun!
Diana came into our lives during an extremely difficult time. Without her unconditional love, godly example and encouragement, I shudder to think of where I would have ended up. I think she truly saved my twin sister and I from the disastrous brink we were teetering on. She had the extremely difficult task of raising two teen daughters, scarred from a divorce. It wasn't easy and we didn't make it easy on her. She gave up so much to marry my dad and help raise us. I'll never forget her sacrifice.
Diana is devoted to her presently 9 grandchildren, loving each of them equally. The adore her in return.
My SIL, sis and I put together a framed scrapbooked collage of pictures of Diana with all her grandchildren. I think she really liked it. It was fun to put together and brought back many memories.
So Diana, happy birthday to an awesome mom, wife and grandma! Blood is not what makes family, it is relationships. Thank you for your love for us all.
BTW, Can't believe you're half way to 100!
Love and Blessings,
