A Wonderful Birthday Gift

I celebrated my birthday yesterday, and today my best friend and love of my life gave me this ring. It replaces my original wedding band that was unwearable after being cut off me several times during various illnesses.
Thank you love. I will treasure it forever.

Have you ever been bombarded with negative statements about your choice to have ten children? I am a converted Catholic who does not use b.c. We just found out we are expecting our second and are thrilled! However, my family has said some very hurtful, cruel things about us having a second child in two years. How do you deal with these kind of comments?

Oh, Joann, Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!
What a blessing that you have celebrated you birthday again. I am sure that your family is truly aware of their good fortune in having you alive to celebrate not only your birthday but Chritmas again this year. Also, what a wonderful husband you have to give you such a thoughtful gift. It really speaks to a womans heart to have that symbol of marriage and motherhood back on your finger. God bless you. I will remember you when next I am able to get to Mass.
