Happy 36th Birthday To Amy

This is Amy.  She is our first born and today is her 36th birthday.  She was born to parents just coming out of their teens and weighing only an ounce under five pounds.  I remember her being so tiny with a small patch of curly hair and the sweetest little face.  She was the first grandchild on both sides and so a "first" for the whole family and we all fell in love with Amy.  She was a bright child having an extensive vocabulary at the age of two and reading 60 words on flashcards at three.  As she grew she became the big sister to so many and was such a help to me.  If you gave her a job to do it was done right and she is still that way, today. After high school she went on to college and got her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing.  She enjoyed the nursing profession and was sweet and caring to her patients because that is who she is in character.  She worked at our local hospital for several years until she married and had her two children.  Now, she is a loving, caring mother to Chloe and Isaac and a wonderful wife to Nels.
Amy,  Dad and I are so blessed by you and so proud of who you are.  You are a "light" wherever you go!
