Happy 30th Laura

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    This is my little, middle girl a long time ago.  Whenever my babies have a major point in their lives, it always makes for mixed emotions on my part.  It is wonderful to see your children grow into adulthood as fine, decent persons. To see them take new challenges and responsibilities. However I now have 4 of 6 over the age of 30.  Oh, how it makes me feel so old. Laura has always had her own special beauty.  She is very artistic and musically inclined and has a beautiful singing voice.  She has also had her own sense of style, much to the chagrin of her older sister.  It's hard to be the middle child.  She is turning into a wonderful mother.  Both her boys are autistic and are a challenge; to which she is trying to rise to.

Right now she is going through a particularly hard time.  She just had to move into an apartment with next to nothing.  Starting all over from scratch is never easy and unlike when there is a new marriage or an new baby where you receive gifts to get you started; she has had family and friends help but it is not the same.  We have helped as much as we can, but there is so much to reestablishing a household it is amazing what you miss.  Her brothers took up some furniture last weekend and went to throw away some trash and realized she did not have a garbage can, just a trash bag in the cabinet (so the boys couldn't get into it).  Needless to say a trip to Walmart was made.
Today on her 30th birthday she decided to spurge and get a cake mix to make her own cake, but had to buy a $5 dollar mixer to make it with.  She has had a really good attitude about it though and is delighted to have a mixer.  She got cookware from us.  She is learning to appreciate what most of us take for granted.  She even considers them splurges and treats.  If you would like to help her out and make her birthday and her life a little easier she does have an Amazon wish list under Laura Frazier but there are lots of them so click here to go directly to her Wish list.  Love Amazon because she can have a wish list and have things sent to her without giving out her address.  Amazon takes care of the shipping.  Remember any orders that goes through my blog; I earn money from.  This also helps me to help Laura more.  So if you have a personal order go to the amazon icon on the top right hand side of my post and click GO.  This takes you to the Amazon home page; then you place your order as you usually do

Check out these eyes, They belong to Laura's youngest, Wyatt.  Then check out Laura's baby picture at the top of this post. Amazing 
Enjoy your evening

Happy birthday, Laura! You've got a tough row to hoe at 30 but you can do it! I hope her ex is paying support for the kids but if he is not, get a lawyer and go after him.

Unfortunately I am also poor, below the poverty line but I wish her the best of luck.
