Today is Nancy’s birthday,
and don’t you know that
She is The Gift.
the gift of laughter
and reminders of what’s important and what’s not.
of being content with what you have and where you are
instead of looking for That One Special Thing
that will make you happy or make your life Complete.
She’s an example of how to accept help from others
without feeling needy or inadequate
Becoming Nancy’s sister-in-law might just be the best gift
The Engineer ever gave me,
and let me tell you what:
he’s a fantastic gift-giver.
Happy birthday, Nancy.
Here’s to many more years of
drawing and stitching
laughing and loving
and good health.
