and yet, another angel...



I can't let the day pass without making mention of Amber's birthday! Let's see...where do I even begin? First of all, anyone who knows her, would surely agree with me when I say...she's an angel. Not only is she sweet and kind, but she is constantly serving and doing charitable acts for others. I can't count the number of times I've come home to a homemade treat on our porch, or a gift basket of some sort, or a handwritten note that she had dropped in the mail, or a kind voicemail, or a sweet text message. She is genuine and loving and caring. She is compassionate and truly knows what it means to mourn with those that mourn. I have seen her on many occasions, cry with those that are experiencing some sort of difficulty in their lives. And in fact, she has done so with me on more than one occasion. She has had her share of trials, too, and certainly has every right to feel sorry for herself; but rather than hold a pity party, she gets up and does something kind for someone else. I can't think of many people that know her, who haven't been touched by her kindness in some way. She really is an angel.
Happy Birthay, sweet Amber!
I love you.

You have completely summed-up Amber! She is always there to lend a shoulder, share tears and lift your spirits. Amber leaves everyone a little better off than she found them! Love, Brandi Mitchell

I totally agree. I don't know Amber nearly as well as I would like to, but she has been a sweet advisor to my daughter Cassidy. We just love her!!
