On September 30, 1988, a beautiful red-headed daughter was born to Larry and Julie Kiser and they were never the same. After 9 months of anticipating whether a boy or girl would grace their home, a little girl had been sent from heaven above. The smile on her daddy's face was priceless. Cassidy, you have brought me so much joy and happiness for 22 years now. Everyday, I feel blessed that the Lord loved me enough to share you with me and give me the privilege of being your mother. It's truly hard to believe that it has been 22 years since that wonderful day. Thank you for your beauty, your love, your kindness, your generous gifts, your laughter, your creativity, your friendship, your loyalty to your family, your love of the gospel, your love of your sister and your adoration for your brothers, your passion for all things beautiful, your kind heart, your great husband, your love of sports, your fun food ideas, your desire to please others, your love of babies and little children, your great ideas and so much more. You brighten everyone's day just by being you. Everyone who knows you is better because you are a part of their life. I hope you know I'm not just saying all this because I'm your mom. Ask anyone who knows Cassidy..... they will agree. The world was changed that beautiful autumn day 22 years ago for the better. I hope this is a wonderful birthday and that you know truly how much you are loved and cherished. I'm glad you are coming to be with me this weekend. I am so looking forward to it. Happy, happy birthday beautiful Cassidy. Your mom loves you dearly!!! xoxoxoxo

This will be short and sweet but I just had to thank all the amazing people in my life that have texted, phoned, dropped by treats, sent cards and/or gifts, made me breakfast in bed (thanks my cute husband), took me to lunch (thanks my cute husband), etc on my birthday. As I get older, it really isn't the gifts that matter. It's the kind words and the nice gestures that make a birthday happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I mean that. I feel so loved today. I have such a wonderful husband and children who are so kind to me and show me they love me daily. What more could a girl want? Notice I have said girl twice........ well, that's how I feel. I know I am older and getting older but I feel young, act young :) and will remain so as long as I can!!! So, thanks again to wonderful family, friends and neighbors who have made my day the best ever!
