Happy Birthday Tricia!

Tricia turns 27 today! She said Last Year was her best birthday ever, and, even considering it was a miracle that she made it that far, I'm guessing this year will be even better. Her hands are healing, Gwyneth is finally feeling back to herself, and the weather is perfect for the three of us to go strawberry picking, a few hours at the beach, and a little time leftover to do whatever else she wants to do! Gwyneth and I are about to make her breakfast!


Please, help us celebrate by leaving a comment and wishing Tricia a very happy birthday!

And, if you'd like to say "Happy Birthday!" with more than words (and she will totally appreciate the words!), please consider donating to our Personal CF Fund-Raising Great Strides Goal (click "click to donate" on the linked page) to help continue to make life better for Tricia and all CF patients around the world. Every penny we raise goes directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

Thanks!

Nate

Tricia, I've been reading your blog and praying for you for a long time, but never posted a comment. I want to join in wishing you a great birthday and tell you how your story has impacted the life of a friend. She gave birth to a micro-preemie and I gave her the address to the blog. It was a huge help to her to read of your story, about the miracle that is your beautiful little girl. The best part was how your faith in Jesus Christ shines through to her. Thanks for being so transparent and such an beacon for the Lord.
