Happy Birthday to the amazing Moira!!

Time to celebrate our second family February birthday!!

Our younger daughter Moira, who is 14 as of today, arrived in the world on the Saturday following Sara's 6th birthday...in fact on the day Sara was having her birthday party! When my mom (or was it my sister?) brought Sara into the hospital later that afternoon to see her newborn baby sister, a very proud Sara declared she was the best birthday present ever!

My sweet Moira has filled my heart and delighted my soul for 14 years now. Her giggles are infectious, her generosity is inspiring, her inner light shines bright. Sometimes the things she says astonish me in their insight and understanding. I am so blessed by her presence in my life! :)

A few photos from various years...


Here she is at age seven, helping out at my grandmother's 80th birthday celebration:

Happy Birthday to Moira! Love the photos of her; she looks like such a jet-setter in that one in Florence!

Anne:

Annie, I know - doesn't she just? She is one really cool person!!

Barb Cabot:

I know she is her mothers daughter. She has such depth in her soul. You can see that in her eyes. She is so beautiful and I know the outer beauty must just be echoing what is inside. She is a gift and a blessing in your life. Anne, I have no doubt she looked down from heaven and pointed to you saying, "God I want that one for my mommy!"
