Rita is 3/4’s of a century!! LOL!!! She celebrated her milestone birthday at the farm in Texas. We so wished we could be there with her but sadly we couldn’t. Jared’s sister Jonita lives in Dallas which is just a couple of hours away and she spent the day with her and sent us pictures! <3 Technology is such a blessing sometimes! <3
Jeff and Bea sent her kitchen utensils and a curling iron.
Julie sent her these amazing chocolate covered strawberries. Her reaction is priceless!
Jen and the kids send a photo book.
We sent flowers and each of us wrote a letter and Alayna drew a picture too.
She sent this out to the family:
“Oh, my! What a blessed woman I am! As Rich said, I’ve been on cloud 9 all week! So much sweetness has come my way! Thank you for all the acts of kindness, beautiful gifts, and sweet cards and letters. I wish I had the words to tell you how much it meant to me. You succeeded in making me feel thoroughly loved. I thank God for each one of you as you have shown your love in your own special way! Love, love, love you everyone!”
She sent this text to us:
“I have read and reread the heartwarming letters from each of you and my eyes start to tear up each time. You can be sure they will be treasured for years to come. There’s nothing more rewarding than to experience the deep love that I feel for you and to know that it is returned. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Happy Birthday Mom!
