Happy Birthday, Leslie
Leslie has been dealt some hard things in her life but always manages to pick herself up, dust herself off, put a smile on her face and move on. (And look at that smile!)
Leslie was widowed at age 30, just before her little boy's second birthday. She's raising a sweet, beautiful little boy.
I've always admired Leslie's empathy and concern for others. Several years ago my daughter was struggling. She had no friends at school, spent her recesses alone and was sad and lonely from the time she left home until she returned after school. When Leslie heard, she showed up after school one day, took her for a fun outing, bought her a necklace and then framed a picture of the two of them. It was such a blessing to my daughter and a blessing for a worried mom.
Leslie is a talented photographer and has made some of the prettiest cards. She sells them at a local boutique. If I can talk her into opening an etsy shop or a website to sell them, I'll be sure to link them for you.
Happy birthday, my dear little sister and friend! I hope this year is amazing for you! I love you.
