Happy Birthday Bo




Photobucket


this is my dear sister, Marsha

she is married to one of
The Blues Brothers

We were the only children in the family until I was 8 years old,
so we developed a very close relationship, with similar taste in most everything.

We played together constantly as children and shared secrets as young women.

I felt very motherly and protective toward her;
once, I bloodied a neighbor girl's nose for bullying her.


We made up special nicknames for each other that changed over the years,
but for the past 40, we've called each other Bo.

Bo is a beautiful and talented woman
and a wonderful mother to her 7 children
.

She is the only daughter in town near my parents
and I deeply appreciate the time, love and care she gives them.



Have a wonderful birthday Bo!


I love you!

Happy late Birthday Bo! (Mom sometimes I don't get updates that you've posted on my side bar, I guess I should just check every couple days after 6 am :-)

One other comment, that may seem an odd comment, but it's one I thought I'd talk to you about if I ever saw you again... because it's part of our heritage. Have you noticed how you two have the same forehead? Aunt Ruth had the same shaped forehead. Also, one of Paul's daughters has it. I think it must come down from the Stayner line. I think it a symbol of royalty and beauty. ... I always wished that I had a larger forehead! ... and was taller like my cousin Diane and Jennifer!

Diane said...

Yes Lynne, I wasn't clear on it before, but now I am absolutely sure my forehead is a symbol of royalty and beauty ..... your comments like this are why I love you and need to be with you more often!

Yes, I can be comfortable with that "royalty and beauty" idea...
I have really noticed in our photos recently how strong the Stayner resemblance is in my family, as well as among our cousins--it's a heritage I'm very proud of!

And Happy Birthday Marsha! Thank you for being such a wonderful sister, and for taking such good care of our parents.

I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
