We've had fun celebrating you this evening, mija...  looking back all through your fun life!
   ~~  Here's just a titch  ~~  stay tuned... I'll post more  : )  I'm just getting the hang of it.

"Practically Perfect In Every Way"

She's 26 today ~ and going strong!
I was almost 26 when SHE was born
She was almost 26 when Cohen was born
Will he be almost 26 when he becomes a parent?
Will she be almost 52 when she becomes 'Grandma O'?
 Will i be there to cheer them on when I'm almost 78?
I hope so.
I hope they live nearby, don't you?

(she put up with our awful singing to her via webcam at the stroke of midnight last night, and also let us get right up in awake Cohen's face and make total fools of ourselves while we adored him)

All during her first 15 years, she eagerly welcomed each of the 6 babies with all her heart, and has never stopped being a great sister to them!

WELL DONE ! ! ! ! !

My Dearest "T.A.Y.F.O",
(Whomever you are...)


I am profoundly grateful - more than any words could ever convey - for your creative, amazing


It was such a totally sweet surprise! I can't stop thinking about it.

I only hope I can anonymously brighten someone else's life at some point the way you've brightened mine today : )



PS: For those of you who are not the "whomever" I am addressing, and want to know more details -- CALL ME, 'we'll tu-alk' - You'll LOVE it!

I had a VERY challenging week at work, and also found out that it's going to get even harder very soon...   SO,

Seeing this a minute ago just made my  M O N T H ! !
