My mother-in-law is right; this doesn't really go anywhere. I figured it doesn't fit sandwiched between two memorials, but since when do our ups and downs every fit nicely? Here's the comment she left:
You know what's a good surprise? When the phone rings and you hear that long delay that only comes from Iraq. Only it's not your husband; it's one of the Soldiers you write letters to, your best friend's husband, calling to wish you a happy birthday. Wonderful surprise.
Consider yourself hugged.

Happy Birthday to my very special daughter. I remember vividly the day you were born, just as if it were yesterday. Yet, it's hard to believe that you are a twenty-seven year old adult now, someone who has definitely "come into her own." I admire you for your independence, your intelligence, your compassion, your morals, your values, and your convictions. I knew you were destined to make your mark in this world because you were such an extraordinary child--walking at 9 months, saying your ABC's at 14 months, reading at 3 years, wanting to be an orthodontist at the tender age of two, mothering your little brother when you were only six(putting your mother to shame as you'd hold and comfort him), succeeding in all your endeavors in your high school and college years, and now being a soldier's wife, which seems so fitting since you have travelled the world and still know that the USA is the very best! You were always a little "sponge" for knowledge, and I'm proud to see that that has not changed. I love the fact that you still want to learn and that you've channeled that desire into your blogging and teaching. How fortunate I am to wake up each morning to read your words of wisdom. I am thankful that God has blessed me with a very special daughter as you. May He watch over you as the years go by. I love you.

Sarah - I'm having to use the library computer here at Fort Belvoir...I miss my own computer so much. Anyway...just wanted to add my belated well wishes to your birthday. I'll be back online someday!
