A beloved friend celebrates her 69th birthday today with many friends, her children and grandchildren.

They are celebrating the wonder of a woman who counsels and cares for everyone, with unconditional kindness.

She is celebrating 69 years of triumphs, and, yes, struggles.

Our friend teaches all of us, with beauty, wisdom, and pure compassion.

There is only love.
