Dearest Daughter

You may want to enjoy my quirky art and 
 pass by the love chatter as this 
 post is dedicated to my darling daughter
who  turns thirty one on Saturday! Oh where did
the time go?
Benson party boy! Sadly the background colour is not true. It's a rich turquoise.
Dearest Daughter what a joy you are to my life!
Daily you exude beauty from the inside out. You've taught
 me more than you will ever know! 
I adore your great sense of play and ability to 
hang onto a childlike spirit  in your grown up world!
I love how you honour your treasured childhood,
 by making sure children are loved and understood.

Watching your husband smile at your daily sense of glee
is so touching and rewarding!  Your goofy antics, love of 
cartoons, playing in snow, singing  in the car, and
 celebrating all things fun, makes you such a joy to be with! 
Your witty humour never fails to amuse me!
 Feeling proud is such an understatement when I think of 
how sincerely thoughtful, compassionate and loving you
are to me, my friends and family!  You make life better!!
I still wonder how I was so lucky to have such an amazing

  You're an  incredible woman of substance, empathy
 and common sense! What a special lady you are
 with such a generous, kind, ethical spirit!
 You live with so much grace never needing
  an ounce of gratitude or praise for all that you
do for me and others! You are so appreciated!!
 I enjoy how oblivious you are to your effortless
 beauty as you cuddle on the couch in your cozies!
  I admire how adorable you are as you prance around
doing housework like a dancer in tee-shirt, capri
tights, hair knotted on on your head!
And I giggle as your tiny self barrels down
  the stairs sounding like a herd of elephants!
 Your penchant for numbers married with
creativity, is another delight  to  watch,
as you budget and complete so many 
great projects that turn out wonderfully
and save us money! 
Old items revamped this year...some items Beardo saved from being trashed!
When I see this tee-shirt blanket you've recently completed
I realize how much you revered your childhood.
All the special  memories that blanket now holds make  it
such a treasure!  As I study each shirt I'm reminded of all the 
  special times we've shared over  the last three decades! 
The laughter, the music, the concerts, and hockey screams,
never to be forgotten!  Each shirt a great symbol
of the love you hold in your heart everyday, for your
husband, the life you've lived and continue to create!`
I especially love how you lined it with a fuzzy
blanket that shall last for decades!! 
Cupcake made a Tee-shirt blanket that makes me smile as memories flood in.
 Your ability to find joy in simple things is a gift I passed on 
from  my parents!  I am pleased to see how much
 that plays into your sense of gratitude and joy! 
Having a happy child who appreciates nostalgia
has been such a wonderful blessing!
 I love your passion for learning about things that
interest you! How you tackle nutrition in a new ways,
hang onto the past with respect, yet grapple to 
the future with verve! I love that you are always
open to new ideas, interesting conversation
and staying current! I love that you take photos
almost every single day!
Wilson the winded one!!
 Pepper you are truly the best thing that ever happened
to me. Your choices are always impeccable and
have been since early childhood! What a gift to my life
you have been!  Not a day goes by I don't feel grateful!
Wags the balloon lover!!
You have taught me how to live as drama free
as possible. You've taught me to set strong boundaries,
by watching your good example. You have taught me
to find new ways to do things as I navigating being
your mother!  You've taught me to enjoy the moment
without expectation of the outcome! You taught me to
look at the world through different eyes! Without
 knowing it, you've helped me become less of an
 energy  vampire by following your great example.
Happy Birthday Darling Daughter!!
You should be so proud of all you've accomplished
this year! I know this has been a big year of
  contemplation, reflection and completion!
I have no doubt your life is on a great new  path
that you are paving with precision!
 Thank you for all you do for our family, for Beardos family,
for me, my friends, and the less fortunate! Thank you 
for caring so deeply for others and their well being!

Thank you for all your love and support! You are so 
precious to my life and I am amazed at how many
things you are good at! I love sitting at my desk
as you sew next to me. I enjoy watching you concoct
great new recipes. Yet emulate some of my moms
old recipes too! I love my tye-dye duvet cover,
the oils and balms you make me! I enjoy sharing in
all your coupon deals and watching as the universe
fills your life with free useful items so well deserved!
Your spiritual nature and  generosity is proof that 
the lord works in mysterious ways! You are a 
true winner Pepper. No matter what you tackle
in life will have  great rewards as you do 
everything with such heart and ethic!
I know this Birthday is uneventful, but for
now the snow you were hoping for is falling!
  I know you will find so much joy in that  and 
gratitude in the day  as you look forward
  to up coming concerts and all the new things
 your future holds!
I love you dearest daughter! You are my heart,
my friend and everything that I admire in
a strong, independent, loving person!
 Have a wonderful year filled with joy, laughter,
abundance in all things that you love!
May all your dreams come true!
Wouldn't be her  Birthday without a troll involved!!

Do you have any fond memories of certain 
characters you loved?

I loved the  Pink Panther even though 
I didn't care for the movies!

Wonderful art, but I especially love that first birthday card! And your new header of course. Your daughter sounds like an amazing person and a joy to have around. So happy for you that you have her in your life! That picture with all the old items she revamped is amazing, and I love that tee-shirt blanket. I have been keeping my old t-shirts for years in order to make something like this, but I still didn't get around to it. Maybe I should take her example ... :-)

Happy Birthday to your beautiful and talented daughter. What a blessing she must be! I enjoyed your whimsical characters today. I DID enjoy the zany, slapstick comedy of the Pink Panther movies. My nutty sense of humor, I guess.

This is such a lovely tribute. I think it reflects so well on both of you.
These must have been huge teddy bears, it's an amusing photo.
Your happy painted creatures are a great accompaniment.
Hope you are not totally snowed in. We are still waiting for it.
