What beautiful eyes!

I appreciate your revealing your mother's heart. It speaks volumes about your respect for your daughter, and for the depths of your love.

Aren't birthdays a wonderful occasion to stroll down memory lane? Love it!

Oh what precious pictures and what a lovely woman she has turned into. I know you are very proud of her. Please extend my happy birthday wishes to her!

Carole is just as beautiful as her mom. Happy Birthday to Carole. I love your description of her Sonja. And I kind of thought you only had one daughter when I read your title.

Carole's daughters are carrying on the good looks of the family. And I am so glad that Carole loves the Lord too.

Love you sis,
Debbie

How precious...what a beautiful daughter, who seems to take after her beautiful mom. We only have one daughter out of our six and she seems to hold her own spot on our heart. It will be fun to see the kids God blesses her with one day.
Your granddaughters are beautiful also...three generations of beautiful women!
Blessings to you all!!!

Thank you, Mom, for the beautiful words and for the lunch and time with you and my girls yesterday. What a special day! God is so good and He has blessed me beyond measure!
Thank you to your sweet blog friends who helped make my day with their encouraging comments.
45? Really?? I'm wondering when I will wake up and feel 'mature' ... still waiting!
Can I have lived this long and learned so precious little and have such a long, long way to go? I'm so thankful God's not finished with me yet!
I love you so much and am SO thankful you are my MOM!
Love,
Carole

Just a little something from Judy said...

Down the generations it goes...the beauty and graciousness in each of these women's lives. She has your beautiful smile and so do her daughters. Thank you for sharing your kind tribute to her. That in itself has to be the best birthday gift ever, coming from her mother. Wishing her many years of joy ahead.
