Happy Birthday, Charlotte!

(Baby Charlotte)

Today, my middle sister turns golden!

(Charlotte at age 18 months)

Actually, she's been golden to me for a very long time; but today she reaches her golden year!

(Charlotte with her 2 oldest grandchildren, Alix and Jaden)

She is such a blessing from the Lord in my life. I've never realized it more than since Terry's death. She has held me together, which has been no easy task, I can assure you!

(Charlotte with Allyson, her youngest grandchild)

Thank you, Charlotte. I love you and I'm so thankful you're my sister!

Thanks girls! Charlotte would like you all to know she appreciates your birthday wishes. Yep, I think she's a young-lookin 50 too! My sisters and I are very close in age. My youngest living sister will be 49 on May 24. From May 24 until my birthday on Nov. 22, we will be 49, 50 and 51! There's 17 months between me and Charlotte and only 13 months between her and Debra. Momma had three children by the time she was 21. I don't know how she did it?!

Love to all!
