Happy 36th Birthday Steph!

I realized 22 days later that this post was set as a draft and I forgot to undo it. 
What can I say about my only daughter, Stephanie Ruth Wilson Precourt....I am in awe of her Spirit, her Determination, her Zeal, her Patience, her Love for mankind, her Giving of herself, her Motherhood, her non-judgemental personality, her Talents, the list goes on and on.  This is her first Birthday being away from home.  We skyped while she ate her special Birthday Cupcake.  I sang Happy Birthday over the air waves.  It was special.  This IS Steph's year.  She will be making so many changes and I have no doubt that they are for the good.  She is embracing this new change.  She is a master of changes in the past year.  I admire her strength for packing up 2 houses in 5 months time and still have her sanity.  My wish for my beautiful daughter is to continue living life to the fullest and keep following those dreams because they are certainly coming true. 
Happy 36th Birthday Steph
love, mom

Christmas Memories of 2012

Christmas 2012 was different than any other.  Steph and family were in Ohio and didn't come home.  It was the first Christmas without our daughter.  We still had a great time celebrating with Nate, Elsa, Abby & Jack on Christmas Eve., then we all went to Church for the candle light service.  We all came back to my house for Birthday Ice Cream Cake and sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. 
Christmas Day we woke up and opened our presents with Steph, Jeff, Noah, Carter, Gray & Ivy via Skype.  We went one by one and it was fun.  It was almost like being there in person.  At noon, Mike and I went over Elsa's parents house for lunch.  We had a nice time.  We came home after that and relaxed.  We were excited to learn that we would be spending New Year's with Steph and family.  There is always something to look forward to.  It was a very Merry Christmas!
