Happy Birthday Lydia...
Today is sweet ly's birthday....
She and her husband Cris, had their first baby not too long ago... Little baby Mariana.
Her friendship in journal land has been a constant from her home in Mexico across the
continent to my door for years now (ok only a couple, but saying "years" sounds so cool!)
and it has been one of the great pleasures in my journal experience to know her and her family.
She, btw, has a deep deep voice that melted my heart the one time I had a chance to speak with her.
Happy birthday sweet-lilttle-mommy... May this year bring to you every imagined joy,
and it is my hope that you overcome each of the little challenges that you and Cris
will certainly encounter as new parents. Patience, love and the strength of family
will overcome all. I hope your spirit is ever strengthened by the experiences you
I will never ever forget the deeply felt joy that I experienced in watching and reading as
you carried Mariana and I look forward to every little snippet of time you will have in
the future to share your stories.
I know that I speak for every friend you have made in journal land when I wish for you the best
of health and the greatest happiness in the upcoming year.
