HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACE-GHOST!


Today is Stace-Ghost's birthday. Stace-Ghost is married to my youngest son. I was thrilled when Stace-Ghost and Babs announced their engagement! Stace is such a great person. She allowed me to help with the wedding and reception far more than a normal mother-in-law would, so it was a great chance for us to get to know each other better, even though she and Babs had dated for several years. I've always admired Stace-Ghost for joining the church when she was a teen-ager. I remember when she was investigating the church and was trying to decide if she should join. Her mother was allowing her to join, but was not thrilled with the idea and she was trying to decide if she should go ahead and do it. I didn't know her real well at this point, but I had friends who knew her and I could see the love that they had for her and knew that she was a special person. She and Babs have been living with us since August and as I continue to get to know her better and better, I also grow to love her more and more. She is perfect for Babs. She is funny and energetic and gets Babs to be more energetic than he might think of being otherwise. I read Bab's blog about her and I'm glad that he tries to be a better person for her. That is the way it should be. Stace-Ghost is friendly and easy to talk to. I like how she speaks her opinion and is not afraid. She truly cares about Babs and every member of his family and will do anything for them. I could not have found a better soulmate for Babs if I had been choosing myself. Happy Birthday Stace-Ghost!
