Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

Happy Birthday, Special Treasure

God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than herself,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you’ve done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.

happy birthday Elizabeth! Now I don't know if I would go so far as to having a national holiday named after you, but... you are indeed a special person!

I was going to text you a "Happy
Birthday" yesterday but like so many things I mean to do, it didn't
get done. (Reminds me of Pres.
Nixon upon leaving office) We did
get reservations made at Royal Garden at Waikiki. Only 71.10 plus
taxes etc. for weekdays and 89.10 for the weekend. Has micro and
small frig. Hopefully no bed bugs!
Happy Birthday from Isä too. Love,
