Daughter-in-law #1 with Danni

I can’t claim to understand what it must have been like for you as a little girl to lose your dad, and then your mom, and come to a strange country to live. What I do know is it has taken a special kind of courage for you to build a life as a wife and mom from that beginning. I’m proud of you for that–and many other things–and I love you more than I could ever say to you, dear #1. I bless the day God brought you from Japan and placed you in my family as a daughter of my heart. Happy birthday.

God bless you and enjoy Josh Groban and this song that makes me think of you.
