For Gui -

(Sadie Beth, Lauren, Joseph, me, Kimberly)
Happy 20th birthday, Joseph!!! :)

You have been such a blessing and help to our family many times over, between being bodyguard and protector on trips to the beach or walks in neighborhoods, to being rescuer when need be ;), to talking techy challenges with my Dad, to talks, games, laughter, and just all around brotherly friendship - we are thankful to know you!! Too bad we couldn't fly Sadie Beth over just to take one more lovely walk around the St. Andrews Lake and rehearse our Irish accented lines. :) How many great memories I have with you and your family!! Good times. ;) May God bless all your endeavors and life this year!!

May you be as Psalm 1 ....
"... his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper."
Psalm 1:3

With thankfulness for your 20 years,
~ Jean Marie ~

Thank you Jean Marie for your thoughtful post and for remembering Joseph's birthday! We love your family and would love to have Sarah here for another visit and stroll around St. Andrews listening to her English accent! We will look forward to that again!
