happy birthday carol!

Today, April 15th, is my sister Carol’s birthday. Carol is a beautiful, caring, positive person who is a great mother, home schooler, health fanatic, maybe sometimes a “surf widow”, and definitely a sassoo ( i have no idea how to spell that). She looks hot (no pun intended) in red sweater pants too. I’m so glad she’s my sistah.

    Thanks for doing this, Holly…funny, I was thinking…I should post Carol today (on Sunday)…. However, I am still a bit ‘post-challenged.’

    I agree with all the good you said and more with this daughter, a/k/a sister of yours. Our family is so richly blessed with her life and service and example. And, I always find a sense of peace when I am around Carol. Gene, can you believe that you have shared 1/2 of her life with us as of your anniversary on the 19th. (Actually, a tad more, counting dating.)

    How can a mother be SO blessed with four beautiful daughters and three beautiful daughter-in-laws, which I prefer to call daughters as well. My ‘cup runneth over’…and thanks, Carol, for being No. 1 to lead the pack. As I say…beautiful inside AND outside.

    I must say, ever since Carol marched all the way down to Lizbeth Street(probably about 1/4 mile) to pound some bullies who had taken my bike, I’ve had all the respect in the world for her. Even when I was a fragile pre-teen and she insisted on styling my hair for church with a CURLING IRON because it was the latest thing, I still admired her. When I heard about her berating a kid in front of a crowd at the Aquarium when he tried to grab a sting ray, I thought “that’s my sister!” What a great example and help to all of us–hope you had a great birthday Carol!

    Happy Birthday Cawwol as I used to say. Thank you for being such a great example and role model. Thank you also for marrying one of the coolest bro-in-laws a little brother could ask for which I consider a brother after all these years. Also for two cute little neices that have brought joy to my life. I hope that your birthay was great and that you had a relaxing day. Of course you’re beautiful, you’re the only other one with black hair! ;)

    Happy Belated Lorac!!!! I’m the loser sister who forgets everyone’s birthdays…etc.

    well, at least I’m consistent, right? It isn’t like I only forget certain people’s birthdays!
