Happy Birthday Rachel

Today my beautiful daughter in law turns 24 years old. She has been such a blessing to this family. Her character is strong and she has the passion to be the best mother she can be. I know people who worry about their grandkids, especially if the mother is an in law, but I never worry about TJ. He is always taken care of, his every need met.She is a loving wife. She has a strong connection with my son. A real love, that she has had for him since she was 16 years old. The family they are creating, is God ordained and blessed. She is the heart of that family.She shows interest in those things that nurture her family and home, and spends her time building those cornerstones.Her desire is to stay at home and raise her children. My son lovingly supports that and she has grown into a wonderful homemaker.
And she fits. She fits right into our family. There was a place carved out for her from the beginning. I prayed for this girl before I knew her, when she was just a toddler, all the way up until she married my son, and then I have continued to pray for her. She has been a true gift to our entire family. My parents adore her!!! and she loves them. We are so honored to have her as one of our own.
Happy Birthday Rachel. We love you, Sweetie!!!

Love, Mom and Dad
