This woman here is so precious, sweet, giving, generous, creative, clever, loyal and loving. And I'm lucky enough to live in the same town as her, as well as be her friend!! Seriously, Cathy is a true friend and sister and I couldn't imagine life without her.
Today we celebrated her birthday with a morning tea at my place.
Circumstances kept it from being all that I had anticipated.... Helen couldn't be here, Cathy has some really worrying things happening within her family life (if you can, please pray for her, and for her sister Ally), and we had some sickness within our own little family today.
But that didn't stop us from gathering and sharing, eating, drinking, spilling water and playing in it (okay, that bit was just William), laughing and crying and just enjoying some time together.
Nor did it stop my friend Mychel's little Ben from trying to drink the jelly. ;)
Happy birthday sweet Cathy, for today and for the entire year stretching ahead. And by the way, you are looking so very radiant. So very 2nd trimester-ish. I can't wait to meet this precious baby!!! (......... and um, when can I announce her name??? ;)). xo
