Rita,you are such a blessing to our family. The past 15 years have been so much fun. You were our fourth born child,and I think by then we had things a little more down pat with babies and we could just thoroughly enjoy you. But another thing that really helped is that you were so easy going. And you still are sometimes when we get in some tight spots you are always there to encourage and say"O don't worry,it will work out already." And it usually does because of your willingness to help out wherever you can. Rita is a quiet and fast worker.
Rita loves to do almost anything that has to do with the outdoors. She is great at milking the cows and doing chores,driving the combine and spending lots of time with her horse. She likes to have time for herself going for walking and jogging. Not only does Rita like to do outdoor stuff but she is also a great cook! On her cooking weeks she has the house in an aroma of all sorts of delicious smells. We all enjoy coming to the table to discover what she has cooked up for us this time!
Rita loves her family. There is a strong bond between her and her siblings. There are three girls in one bedroom. When Rebecca got married one bedroom became empty. But it is still not being used because none of the girls wants to be alone,so they decided to stay together. I am so thankful for that special bond and friendship between sisters. She has a teasing way of getting her younger brothers to want to be around her. And she has a very special place in her heart for her little nephew Andy.
Rita loves her violin and enjoys spending time making music on it. She plays some tunes on the piano as well. But trys to keep that to herself.
Rita we are so happy that you have Jesus as your friend and are walking in His steps. It makes us as parents so glad to know the our children walk in the truth. Rita our prayer is that you will continue to look to the Lord for guidance and direction and let Him be the Master of your life.
I can not help but say life would very dull and empty with out you in our family! We love you for who you are and what you do for us! May God bless you with a blessed year. Love Your family
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
2 Peter 1:2&3
