Happy Birthday Dear Mandy

Since Jeremy was a teeny-tiny
baby, I prayed for God to provide
the perfect woman for him to marry.
As always, God provides above and beyond what
we can ask or imagine.
Mandy, from day 1, was an integral part of our family.
She was a beautiful bride.
She is an amazing mother!

All those years that I was praying for the perfect
wife for Jeremy, God had a tremendous surprise
in store for me. Not only did he
answer that prayer, but he answered an
unspoken prayer.
He provided a perfect daughter for me.

I love you Mandy!
Happy Birthday!

God did answer those prayers for both of us, didn't he? We are truly blessed to have the daughters-in-love that we do!

I was just going to tell you after reading your post that I saw someone call their son in law "son in love" the other day and say it sounds like Mandy is your "daughter in love", but your friend beat me to the punch. What a blessing for the both of you!!

I don't know why my comment didn't save. I sent it way back on my birthday. I have a really hard time commenting on blogs from my iPhone (which is where I usually view them). It said something like:
You and I are very blessed to have each other. I often think there must be people who are jealous that I have such an amazing woman for a mother in law. We are blessed to have such an amazing relationship and I don't know what I would do without you. I love you!
