Dear Elizabeth

Happy Birthday! It is my birthday too!! So pleased to share it with you. I have just got off the phone with my good friend in England who also shares this birthday - we would always celebrate together when I was in college.

I first heard about you when I was on hospital bedrest with the twins - and I would wait for the Arlington Herald so that I could read your column. This was before I had even considered homeschooling. Through all these years I have felt I know your family through your column. When I was considering homeschooling, by some coincidence I got to talk to your friend Kate on the phone - I did not even know her (in fact only met her for the first time a few months ago) - and she drove by my mailbox and dropped off your book for me to read. That helped me make my decision. I have since got the book for so many friends who are considering homeschooling.

Big birthday hugs - I am sure we will bump into each other soon.

Happy Birthday Elizabeth and Marilyn!!! We'll be praying the rosary for both of you today.

And Elizabeth, I've been praying since yesterday that today would be an extra special, spiritually rejuvinating day for you. You do SO much for us here! We are blessed to have you.

Big to BOTH of you ladies!
