Happy Birthday Corrie

Today is Corrie's birthday. Here are 7 things about Corrie that you should know:

1 - She has awesome eyes and a great smile.

2 - She is an imaginative mom who inspires creativity in her kids.

3 - She is a diligent disciple of Christ. She serves as our Primary president and works hard for those kids!

4 - She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES chocolate. (you know that creates a bond for us!)

5 - She is kind. When she thinks of something kind to do for someone, she just does it, quickly. She doesn't make it complicated.

6 - She is from Canada/Colorado but is making Alabama her home. She moved here about 6 months after I did and we "bonded" at our first Visiting Teaching conference - she got lost driving to the church and I could totally relate because I got lost driving to the church for YWs the first time.

7 - She is a devoted and compassionate friend. When Phil started chemo and was so very sick, she cried with me - not sobs, just tears of compassion and empathy. I will forever remember and appreciate that.

Happy Birthday Corrie!

I stumbled on your blog while looking for a quote by Pres. Hinkley. Imagine my surprise to find another LDS, Oregonian transplant in Alabama! We've been in here since '04.
