Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Sorry, my life revolves around two young girls.  Birthday parties in my house are all about the princesses.
God bless!

I have to confess that I was shocked when I noticed this thread this morning. I did not know what to say and I still do not.

I have a tendency to get overly emotional so I am not going to go there.

I liked the Princess crown Asteriktos so do not worry. I also wish I could go to Biro's Chrismation but I cannot afford it.

I also received a wonderful present from Romaios:

It is almost as if he instinctively knew what would move me.

I understand that. Odds are that I won't be able to make it to my niece's baptism due to funds and time budgeting. First cradle in my family, too.

Happy belated birthday!

Thank all of you very much!

I baked a cake,
but it is late.
I will frost it tomorrow morning.
