Today is a special day for two very special people in my life.
Olivia Grace Borgdorff is 17 years old today!
full of personality
bright and caring
adores her cousins
and a lover of God, people and life.
Olivia Grace, I hope your 17th year will bring you an abundance of peace, adventure, and a never-ending awareness of God’s presence in your life. I love your good mind, your big and tender heart, your perseverance and your growing and solid faith! Love you bunches! Aunt Trish
And my dear Aunt Dot has a birthday today as well. She is a great neighbor, amazing Aunt, faithful friend and great travel partner. I am so thankful for an Aunt who has become a great friend. She has been a third parent to me and my siblings and another Beppe to the great group of kids in our family. Aunt Dot is a collector of stories and is faithful in sharing those stories through translated letters from Dutch relatives old pictures and editor of 25+ years of Treasured Ties, our family newsletter.
Aunt Dot is a gem, a kind soul, an analytical thinker, a quiet presence, an organizer, a proofreader, a loyal friend.
I love you Aunt Dot. You are forever and always a member of our Borgdorff bunch. You may be called by different names, Dorothy, Dot, Dirkje, Aunt Dot, Beppe Dot, Tante Dot…..
But you are loved and held dear by us all! Happy 64th birthday. May this year bring you good health, peace in each day and an abundance of God’s goodness. Much Love, Trish
