Melinda, thank you so much for the wonderful "Thank You" note. I am so glad that you had time with your Family and Friends on your Birthday. They will always be the most important people in your life. Knowing you were with them made it all the more special for us.

I, too, am glad you were thrilled with your bracelet and the MNM bednet donations. But we are thrilled just as much by you and your wonderful voice. You are and always will be our inspiration. And I am so happy to be a very small part of your life.

And don't worry ......we love you even more, for just being YOU!

Thank you for that wonderful post, Melinda. I'm glad you got to have a special day celebrating with family and friends, and that you liked your gifts. Teaching moms technology can be hilarious....I don't think I've laughed as hard all year as when we tried to teach my mom to use a digital camera, then later saw the resulting pictures. Anyway, glad you had a blast and can't wait to hear more stories. I love you and all the backups, and am very proud to be one  World Hug

Okay, so I don’t even know where to start here. Tonight is my birthday and I am having a blast. My family is in town and I had a dinner at my house for them. So, my mommy, daddy, other mom, sister, niece and best friends were at the house. We had such a great time, especially when we tried to teach my hilarious mommy how to text. You can imagine that the night was all laughs…except for when it was time for me to open the gifts. There were a couple of funny cards…I have to tell you about those later. You will love it! Then, I started to open gifts. I got some Chanel earrings and a necklace from my sister and niece which you know I put on immediately and then I got to the bag Janet had brought in with her….
Omigosh!!!! First of all, thank you Greg and Munique for your precious gifts. Greg, the necklace is beautiful and Munique the tribute is amazing! Thanks ILT for the beautiful flowers. Thanks Sally and Christina for coordinating and sending everything. Now to the part that made me cry. THE CHARM BRACELET!!!! Seriously? Seriously!  :unbelievableYou guys have to be the most thoughtful group of people to ever grace God’s wonderful earth. I could tell that so much thought and planning went into this and I have no idea how you did it, but I am beside myself with gratefulness. The Bible with EPH 3:20, the high heel with Chanel, the music staff with Love your Backups, the flowers, the best friends with I love my Gayles, the Africa with MNM, the heart locket for me and my mommy and the Tiger are the best representations of this year’s journey.
Now, I know you have to be wondering why it took me so long to send this response. Well, it is now Monday morning and I spent yesterday at church, having family over for brunch and getting ready for the skating party with my friends that I had not seen all year. I will give you details on the party later. All of this was happening as I was trying to figure out a way to end this message with the most profound thank you ever.
I still have no idea how to be profound about it, but as I sit here with my retainer in, head wrap on and blinds closed  Blush, I cannot help but be so thankful to God for putting such wonderful people in my life…people that take me for who I am and then inspire me to become a better person. I know that I don’t deserve you all, but God mercifully put you here to have my back and I can’t tell you how much it is needed and how much it means to me. I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you! Okay, so that wasn’t profound, but you get my point.   Thanks   Thank you!!!!      Huzzah!


We love you Melinda! You more than deserve us;)
Proud Backup- I love you Melinda!

Happy Birthday again and I'm glad you liked the gift and it was really sweet of you to tell us all how much you liked it.  Wub  I'm a little puzzled, however, did you mention ALL of the charms?  Dunno  I mean, if you did there must be some mistake?  Duh Where is the great big charm engraved with "Tiernan is Number 1"?  Enraged I know, I specifically sent that one to be added to the bracelet.  What ever could have happened to it?  Melodramatic  Don't worry, Mel, I'll get to the bottom of this.

Tiernan, don't worry.  We decided we would give it as a prize to the Backup with the WORST voice doing karaoke at Franklin.  We didn't think it was fair for Melinda to have you all to herself.  So we decided to spread the love around with this one. I hope both you and Mel understand.   Thumbs Up

(***Note to self . .really practice hard for karaoke so not the WORST)
