Happy 70th Birthday Mom! ;)

Today is my mother's 70th Birthday.  She is still a very beautiful, youthful and jubilant lady.

She always made my brother and I feel like we could do anything we wanted to in life.  He was a Prince and I a Princess growing up within our haven of a home.

She always celebrated each holiday; we had a large front window in our home where she displayed decorations for each.  I can still remember walking home from school and the excitement rising within me as I saw a new decorative window.

She made even the toughest of times seem light and she taught us that we could celebrate life no matter the circumstances and that joy was a choice.

I tried carrying on that tradition within my own home with my husband and daughters.

Thank you mom for being the lady that you are and Happy 70th Birthday; it looks good on you!  ;)

Setting the Stage

Since my story is an old fashioned Fairy Tale I've decided to keep my hard left margin with one spacing between paragraphs.

I know everyone else is using the indented paragraph with no spacing between.  But, I like to be different.

I thought it would be fun to have the Elves speak Scottish Gaelic and the Pixies Irish Gaelic, since I'm told by my family we have a bit of both in our ancestry.

In my mind I'm not sure if it's a different place altogether, but most definitely a different time; when Elves, Pixies and Faeries roamed the land.

I'm having quite an adventure!  Well, I better get back at it!  ;)
