Happy Day of Birth, Ashley!




Blessed is the first child. She patiently helps me through motherhood, paves the way for those behind her. She courageously accepts much more responsibility than should be thrust upon her. She organizes and prods her younger siblings, giving her mother a little reprieve from mothering. She cries when I cry and laughs when I laugh. And now my first has her first. He is blessed to have her as his mother. Happy Birthday my dear Ashley.
