Happy birthday


Happy fortieth birthday to my wonderful daughter, Tracey. This is my blue-eyed baby girl who was born in Alaska. Her birth announcement was listed in The Fairbanks Daily-Miner under Cheechakos (newcomers). She has brought me much joy, given me many laugh lines, as well as worry lines. She is on a spiritual path, was baptized last weekend, is engaged to be married on 10-10-10 to a wonderfully supportive man, and she is trying her best to parent a teenager and still be supportive of her twenty year old. I am so proud of the woman she has become.

I can't believe I have a forty year old kid!

Oh, she's very pretty, Linda. Happy Birthday to Tracey. Time flies, doesn't it? I wish her much happiness. By the way, I think she looks very much like her Mom! Susan

Hi Linda, yes she resembles you a lot! And no wonder you're a proud mama...she sounds like a wonderful person. I know what you mean about being old enough to have a kid that old!! I've just been going through those same kind of feelings and have, in fact, been writing about it.

Happy Birthday to her! It's hard looking at our children grown and wondering how we got here:)

Hi Bobbie,
How's the weather there in Pennsylvania, one of my favoirte states? Please consider signing on as a follower. Thanks for stopping by. My uncle in St. Louis was Ed Klein, coincidence, I suppose.
