"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Happy Birthday Fourth

Once a mom, always a mom...as I am sharing my precious baby, that is no longer a baby. She is 19 today. I cannot believe this sometimes as we weren't given the most optimistic outlook for her survival. 

I tear up thinking upon that.

In no particular order I will share my Fourth.
She is an animal lover

Her smile has stolen my heart.

She is a goof with friends here, there, and everywhere...requiring
skype to keep up with some. 

She loves her brothers and visits or connects with them
practically every day.

She was a blondie for many years, with Shirley Temple curls.

She is very creative.  

She has been in two weddings in the past several weeks,
one for a new sister (in law), and the other a bestie friend.

She loves music and went to a bridal shower at a country concert.
She was born 73 days early. I will type that again. 73 days early

Fourth has three wonderful brothers.

And oh she looks so cute in red!

And in braids...

And in snow!
She dressed up when her big brother came home while in the Army.
No matter what she does, she soars in her efforts~
Oh she makes me smile~her brothers do too!

Each day has been a gift with her.

The farm has been a place to see her interact with animals.
She as a way with the furry, wooly, feathery friends!

I  will always see my daughter as amazing.
She can do anything that she sets her mind upon.

Oh and is she a smarty.  I love talking to her and hearing
her thoughts as I am at times astounded at her thoughts.

My baby is a lovely young woman now.

Who always makes me smile.

Oh dear Fourth Happy Happy Birthday~
