Birthday Message

Hi! This is Charlie - Kelly's husband. I am taking over her blog for a minute to send her a quick birthday wish!

Kelly-
For better or worse, in sickness and in health......you have exemplified a wife that is worth more than money or the fleeting feelings of a birthday party. Your strength and character are so precious to Brooklyn and me. I thank God for you everyday; for your loving spirit and your self sacrifice for a disabled child and a chronically ill husband. Your birthday is not something that marks your age......it simply reminds me of how many years your friends, family, and the world have experienced Joy from your life.
I love you so much.
I hope you have a very Happy Birthday.
Charlie
