Happy Birthday GeeGee77 - and many more!
"On the day that you were born, the Angels got together and decided to create a dream come true - so they sprinkled goldness in your hair and starlight in your eyes of blue." I think of this song when I think of you sis!! What a special day this truly is, April 19th and I won't say how old you are but I know for a fact that I am 11 years older than you. Being the oldest in our family and you the youngest - well it seemed like we were a world a part to me. But, I can still remember changing your diaper and fixing you a bottle....it just seems like yesterday. I wish I had been there more for you when you were growing up. I left home when you were a tiny 6 years old, can you believe that. You were so adorable, you had the biggest and brightest blue ones on the planet. You were and will always be my baby sister and I love you so much.
So today, I just want to say "thank you" for all that you have done, to make me laugh, and to just listen to me when I need someone to talk to. I want to especially thank you for the time you came to live with us, you were a teenager back in the late 70's. We were living at Moffet Field and you were in Jr. High as I recall. You came at a time in my life when I needed so much help with work and three little children, thank you sis for all your help - you were a Godsend! To me you are a special gift from God, all my sisters are, but today is your special day so I dedicate this hub to you - GEEGEE77! May God keep you under his grip, never let you go and give you many more years to experience life, family and his love. Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary sis - I hope that you will have a fun filled day with family!
My sisters life - full of love and happiness and sometimes tears
My sister is amazing in the fact that she has in her young life been through some very happy and sad times. She was married to Chico at a young age, and he already had a ready made family with two young children Audry and Elijio, so the earlier years were a little hectic in the fact that my sister was very young, then trying to raise young children. She got through all of that by God's grace and did a superb job, those two love her as much as they do their real mom. Then she had three awesome boys, Anthony, Michael and Marcus, they are also the love of her life and all amazing young men in all of our lives.
The sad situation that she is going through now is the return of cancer in Audry's life, she is only 34 years old. A few months ago she had a cancerous kidney removed and it has returned now in full force, stage 3, but there is HOPE. She will begin the treatments which we are all praying will give her many more years ahead of her. She has an exceptional attitude, keeping positive even in these very trying times. My heart goes out to her and her family and my sister Geegee77 and Chico, may the Lord give them the strength and support for each other which they will need in the days ahead.
My sister Geegee77 has also been there for my mom ever since I can remember, all of us moved away but not Geegee77, she stayed close to my mom and dad. Now it's just my mom and she just had a birthday on March 6th in which all of us flew from different parts of the US to celebrate her special day. I am sharing some photos of that time in this hub. It was a blessing to be around so many family members, some that well I hadn't met yet like my brother Ramon's new wife Ali, she is a wonderful addition to our family. Also my daughter Michelle was able to fly in from Seattle to celebrate the festivities. All in all we had fun and celebrated my mom's birthday almost every day.
I am also sharing some photos of Geegee77's earlier years, her wedding day and also a very old photo of all of us when she was only two years old, priceless! Then there is one of the two of us, she was 7 and I was 18 - that was such a long time ago. These photos bring back so many wonderful memories, but also tell a story of her life and how blessed she truly is. You are and will always have a special place in my heart, I am so blessed to have you as a sister......HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! and God Bless!
