My Yearly Post

Maybe I should change this blog's title to: "Cindy's Happy Birthday Blog" =) I have to do my yearly post! Cindy never forgets to do a birthday post for anyone in our family. Each parent, sibling, in law, niece and nephew gets a heartfelt message from Cindy on their birthday that I know we all look forward to.

Cindy has been through a lot the past few years as her and AJ have gone to all lengths to expand their family. Although it has been absolutely heartbreaking and devastating for both Cindy and AJ, I am constantly amazed at their strength and faith through it all. Cindy has a great talent for writing and is always able to put her thoughts into such eloquent words. I have always enjoyed reading what she writes. But there is just something different about the writing she does about the trials that she has endured. There is a special spirit that permeates from the page, and I know that her words are inspired and meant to reach, comfort, and help heal many people who find themselves in similar situations as her.  She may be my younger sister, but I look up to her so much. She is such a great example to me. She is a loving wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. We are so blessed to be able to live closer to Cindy and her sweet family. The hardest thing about being in Rexburg is being so far from family, and so having them closer is good for my soul.

Happy Birthday Cindy! I know you will be spoiled and showered with love from AJ, your girls  and all of your friends there. I can't wait to come see you in a few weeks. Thank you for being such a wonderful sister. I love you!
