Twenty four years ago today a very special gift from God arrived in our family!
Our very own,

And the prettiest silkiest blonde hair!

Everywhere we went, strangers would stop us and comment on your eyes.

You even had one of your friends in school go home crying to her mother that "Grace gets to wear eye makeup!" because she thought you had on mascara!

Grace, you have given us such a beautiful granddaughter in Miss E that, in so many ways, is just like having another Grace around. She has your same big beautiful eyes, your same contagious smile and she is so smart - just like her Mom.

You are such a blessing to our family!  You have such a sweet and sensitive spirit and you have such a giving heart. 

You are an incredible Mom to E!  You work so hard to provide for her and we could not be any prouder of the fine young woman you have become.

It is so exciting to watch how God continues to work in your life. Dad and I pray that you have a wonderful birthday and may God richly bless you this year.  May God give you the deepest desires of your heart!

We couldn't love you more!

Happy Birthday, Gracie Macie!
