Happy Birthday Laurie!! You're an amazing, precious, caring, loving, kind-hearted, adventurous, beautiful, Godly woman! You are one of God's greatest inventions!! Over the past 16 years we've worked together and done a whole lot of life together... We've traveled all over the U.S. and to a few countries together running all kinds of adventures, mission trips, recon trips, personal vacations for my parents, and even a few of our own fun getaways... We've had so many ups and plenty of downs... We've been engaged twice & called off the engagement twice... We've been on the same page many times and had plenty of disagreements and our fair share of arguments through the years... We have no idea what we are or how to describe our relationship when people ask... sometimes we are a well oiled machine and sometimes we are a train wreck... but through it all we have always remained authentic close friends who genuinely care for one another and wholeheartedly want God's best for each other... through it all our commitment to God and our love for Jesus and doing things His way has covered our long journey to nowhere with grace, forgiveness, Godly love, mercy, and a whole lot of special moments, cherished memories, and treasured experiences. And along the way I've had the honor of watching you grow more & more into the beautiful Godly woman that you are today. Welcome to the 50's club!!! Nifty, nifty, look who's fifty!! No one will ever believe it!! You'll have to be carded to prove your age! I hope today is full of all kinds of special moments, and I pray that the year ahead becomes one of your most cherished years ever!! Happy Birthday "Sporty" "Friend-of-the-animals" "Number 6" "Powder" "Sunshine" "Crazy Cat Lady"!!!! I hope it's unforgettable!!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
