Happy birthday to Cipriana and Takenya, the two most beautiful people I’ve ever known (inside & out)!

Cipriana you are such an amazing woman and friend! I swear you only get more beautiful as you get older! I feel so so blessed to have you in my life and appreciate every moment we have together! I wanted to share something from one of your favorite poets Maya Angelou. Here is the wisdom she shared on her 70th birthday on growing older:

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems
life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.”
“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way
handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled
Christmas tree lights.”
“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your
you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.”
“I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as
a life.”
“I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.”
“I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart,
usually make the right decision.”
“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be
“I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.”
“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will
what you did, but people will never forget how you made them


Love always your third sister and friend,
