celebrating thirty!

And boy did our lives change!  On July 10, 1980, one week before our due date, our daughter, Amber Mae, was born! And our world changed forever!

We fell deeply in love with this beautiful child.

We went from being two young married kids to two young married kids with a kid.

We did alot of growing up ourselves right alongside of Amber and Veronica, her sister who joined our family twenty months later. I could go on and on about those days, but today I want to just celebrate 30 years of beauty in the life of my daughter.

Amber, you are an amazing woman in my eyes.

I find you inspiring, fun, peaceful and kind.

I am so grateful that God has indeed been gracious to you.

Thank you for sharing so much of your life with me.

May this, your 30th birthday, be the best ever.

I love you so!

Happy Birthday and enjoy the show!

make sure your speakers are turned up. 

FYI ~ the slideshow will play continuously so you will have to stop it when you have had enough.

  5. Thanks Ruthi for the memories! You have done it again. What a wonderful legacy you are preparing for your family. Proverbs 31 discribes you well, especially:
    27-She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
    28-Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
    29-“Many daughters have done nobly, but you excel them all.”
    30-Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
    31-Give her the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.

    Ruthi, We love you dearly! Mom & Dad


  6. What a lovely tribute to your beautiful daughter. Ruthi, you are so talented and I stand in awe
    of your work. What a gift God has given you…keep on using to bless others. Thanks for making my day so much lovelier.

    In Him,

    Barb Hayes
