Happy Birthday my Son

"there is an enduring tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart." - Washington Irving

Justin you are stardust you are golden

I am so very proud to be your Mother

Happy Birthday my Son

Justin as a baby with his cousins

Wishing you a day as sunny as your smile,
as warm as your heart, and a day as wonderful
as you are!


I love Enigma
I love you 


There is purity in living beautifully. To indulge in the small ecstasies, the small pleasures. Silk dresses, white tea, gold, sunshine, carved crown molding. It is all malleable, atmospherically- our lives. Simplicity, blue palms, white wines, whipped espresso. You create your paradise out of all these simple luxuries, and that’s purely religious. True divinity wades in the warm oceans of bliss.

" Your ambition should be to get as much life out of living as you possibly can – as much enjoyment, as much interest, as much experience, as much understanding. And not to simply be what is generally called a “success”. "

- Eleanor Roosevelt

and teacher
The world is blessed with you in it

With much love
My Song for you my Son

Go forward in the direction of your dreams
Live the life you have imagined

Happy Birthday to my dear Sister Debbie:

boldog születésnapot
"happy birthday" in Hungarian
´•.✿.•´¯ Happy Birthday' !`•.✿.•``•
A Hungarian Blessing
with faith comes love,
With love, peace,
With peace blessings
With blessings God is present
With God present there is no need

A birthday blessing
Life is change this much we know
We plant a seed,
we watch it grow,
A caterpillar, small and shy,
Unfurls into a butterfly
An acorn falls so it can be
Transformed into a sturdy tree.
And we know when change arrives
Across the landscape of our lives,
We still can trust
that it will mean
A special blessing not yet seen.
As you grow into all God has planned for you this year,
May each day bring you blessing after blessing.

With our beautiful friend Ann

I love you my Sister

Mom always called Debbie her Christmas Angel
Sharon was born for St. Patrick's day
and I was her Easter baby
born during Holy week

Happy Birthday to my dear Sister Debbie

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.

Snow White's Magic Apples (from: Recipes from Disney)
7 apples
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup dried cranberries, unsweetened
1/2 cup almonds, slivered
3 tablespoons light coconut milk
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Wash your apples and core with a melon baller, being careful not to go all the way through to the bottom. With a vegetable peeler, skin the top half of the apples and place them in a baking dish.
In a bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, almonds, apricots, cranberries, light coconut milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
Fill each apple with the oat mixture and bake in your preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until the apples are soft. Let cool for 15 minutes and enjoy!
Walt Disney's first feature-length animated film, the groundbreaking "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," had its premiere on this date in 1937 at the old Cathay Circle Theater in Los Angeles. Among the stars in attendance at the historic screening were Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland and Marlene Dietrich. Do you remember the first time you saw "Snow White"?
“Christmas doesn't come from a store,
maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more....”
~~~ Dr. Seuss

By immersing our lives in the rhythm of the season, charity can flood our souls and fill us with the happiness for which we were created. We awake Christmas morning prepared to celebrate the birth of our Savior not as a memory but as a profound experience of God’s redemptive love.
