Happy Birthday Jodi...

This is Jodi at the Yard Sale Fundraiser...like many...she worked so hard!
On the day of the yardsale...she got food poisening...and still came to support us...isn't she beautiful!



Growing up...I was a pretty big scardy cat...the littlest things would scare me...taking the garbage out at night...creekeys in the house...mean kids...or just nightmares...but I always had a constant that never failed to calm my fears...my sister...Jodi. I remember making mad dashes to her bed after a terrible nightmare...She'd let me snuggle in as she pulled the covers over our heads before beginning the most amazing fairy tales...and quickly all my fears would dissipate. That's something I've always loved about Jodi...she's always been there when I've come running. On the day of Mike's accident, she was in Vegas...I couldn't go running to her...so this time she came running! She knew that I needed her...and how I needed to hear her tell me everything is ok... she hugged me and began telling me the most amazing things about how our lives are going to be great...and we're still going to live a fairy tale life!


Jodi...you're my tummy laugh'n, movie watchin, clothes shopp'n, tear jerk'n, munchies eat'n, momma rock'n, buddy blogg'n, phone talk'n, song sing'n, music dance'n, freak'n awesome sista!...happy birthday Jodi...I sure Love you...

love, MO

You made me cry too, and you probably don't even remember meeting me. So that's awkward haha. I'm Katie Kelly's sister, and she told me about your blog so I thought I would check it out. You are one amazing lady, you truly inspire me.
