This is a picture of my mother in law (from 2 years ago!). She is pictured here with all her grandchildren but one, and has since become a great grandma!
Wednesday, October 31st was her 86th birthday.
She is an amazing woman. She was a missionary in Senegal, West Africa for over 20 years. Two of her six children are buried there, one dying as an infant and one at age 10, who was killed by a crocodile. She tells everyone that she has learned to Praise the Lord regardless of her circumstances. She is busy with her church, serves at the local food bank, plays the piano and a nursing home every week, and often times takes care of "old people".
We wish we could see her more, as we would love to have the children hear all her stories. She was quite the mischievious child! We think our Sarah must take after her, as she is very sanguine and loves to talk to everyone!
Happy Birthday dear Jean. We love you!
