Another Special Daughter

With November soon arriving, another birthday in my family will be celebrated. Beth Ann is my middle daughter. She is an RN and is presently doing administrative work at a local hospital. She recently moved near me and two of my other children. So nice to have my local children living about 5 to 10 minutes away.

My family celebrate birthdays in about 8 of the months of the year. In the past I always had a family dinner. We also would celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas at my home. Recently I started taking each of my children to lunch for their birthday. This gives me some one on one time with them and is less tiring on their mom.

After Beth's birthday it always seems like Thanksgiving, Christmas and the end of the year rapidly approaches.

Beth is the mother of one of my older granddaughter's. Sarah is a music major at Northwestern in Illinois. The French Horn is her passion and she dreams of playing in a symphony.
I am posting this a few days early since Beth will be traveling to Illinois to see Sarah in a special recital. She will be in Illinois when her birthday arrives.

Just some more sharing from this One Woman on Her Journey Through Life.

How very nice for you to have your children near. My granddaughter, Sarah's, birthday is on the 7th of November and my son, Mark's, birthday is on the 14th. It makes for a busy into to the holiday season.

I'm glad you have good mood! Yes, this is great when family members living near.
Birthdays is always great days :)

Your daughter looks like you, too.
I hope she has a great birthday. My twin daughter's birthday is November 20th and we always go to lunch together also. Then Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
