Jim & Harriett Craig
Today I am 71 years old! I’ve been looking back over those years and I want you to know that the greatest birthday present I have ever received, was to be born to this beautiful couple. The second best present was the sister you gave me who has been my first and forever friend.
As a family we have shared more love and good memories than most people ever know. There have been good times and bad times. But even the bad times were good because we shared them together.
I look back on my life and I know God has blessed me so very much by giving me my birth family and also the family I raised with my husband of 50 years, come June.
You have been such a big part of both of my families. You have given me love and guidane as a child, and also as an adult. You have shown that same love and guidance to our children and their children.
There is a line in an old Paul Overstreet song that I think he wrote about our family.
“Forever’s in my heart and in my blood, you see I come from a long line of love.”
Thank you for that Dad…and because of that I can say, “Happy birthday to me!”
In our prayers always.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfullness to you.”
