To Kelly ..... on turning 28.....

Happy 28th Birthday to my beautiful daughter, Kelly.  I can't believe it... time truly does go by so fast.   Here you are a married woman that has accomplished so very much and has a beautiful almost...2 year old.

AT your age.... (1990)  I also had a beautiful two year old... YOU.   You were and still remain my "little angel baby."  I do believe you were my healthy gift from God.  The entire family was blessed to have you come into the world.    I remember it..... almost like yesterday.... the way you came into the world with a smile on your face ,  and so healthy we did not need to even know your blood type.   I on the other hand had to get a dose of morphine ... because really you should have been taken C section as they had already prepped me to do....but you came the old fashioned way , with your little face all bruised up and a drugged mamma.   You were named in that drug induced state... not exactly where the name came from, but it fit and it still does.   You embrace the Irish in you and rock that red hair  .and of course your favorite color is "green" ....

You have always been a joy to be around.  You were on of those children (as is Ryker) that could be taken almost anywhere.   You were the one we WANTED to take on the cruise with us because you added happiness to our adventures. 

I am so glad that I not only got a daughter out of the deal but also a dear dear forever...friend.   We always are there for each other through thick and thin....and there has always been plenty of both because we are both are the ALL or Nothing types....

Thats not all we both are.... I could never deny you and you are my mini me but at the same time are an independent thinker and hard working young lady.   I am so proud of your accomplishments and your abilities. (you are the best of both of your parents rolled into one) 

Thank you my loving daughter...for being a friend to others (even if they are not the best of friend to you)  ...thank you for being a trusted confidant,  a loyal and hard worker,  a wonderful mom, a wife that any man would be proud to have,  a good sister, aunt, and especially Daughter.  

You are talented, beautiful, smart, sweet and loyal.  Don't ever change those qualities- even though the world will try to take them, smash them and even demolish them ....fight hard and keep that beautiful SMILE ,  keep that beautiful HEART.... and defy the odds.   

So far you have done exactly that .... and I am SO VERY PROUD! I love you Kelly Ann.
