Today is almost exactly what it was in 1989, the only difference is it started at 80 degrees and dropped drastically to below freezing and an ice storm.
How do I remember a specific date in 1989, let me tell you, it was the day Elizabeth Anne made her grand entrance into this world.
A daughter I had prayed for, a dark haired, dark eyed daughter, just like my Great-Aunt Linnie had been.
A daughter who has morals, integrity, sense of humor and strong.
I received that and so much more, so today, on your birthday Elizabeth Anne, I want you to know how much I love you and am proud of you.
You remind me so much of your Grandpa and Great Grandpa Testerman, with your love of animals and the way they love you in return.
You also remind me of your dad, your work ethic and foresight.
You have an ability to see beyond today and plan for tomorrow. The way you work towards a goal and you don’t stop until you have achieved it no matter the obstacles is incredible.
You are beautiful, smart, funny and caring, I pray you continue to nurture all of your God given abilities and talents. Most of all your capacity for love, please never lose that and foster that side of yourself.
I love the way you do not allow the past to dictate your future. You are an amazingly incredible woman and I am proud to call you my daughter.
Happy Birthday Elizabeth Anne!
