If you know Debbie, you'll appreciate just how important milestones like this are to her. She's long said that everyone deserves to have their birthday marked in some special way. And when it comes to our family, she always makes them special. It's who she is, always looking out for others before looking out for herself. Deriving joy by bringing joy to the people who matter most to her. It's only one of the many reasons why everyone who knows her loves her, and why people who don't know her are missing out on something - indeed someone - special.
I've been gifted another year with her, and for that I'm thankful. And whether you're one of her students or a friend, I know you all have your own reasons to be thankful that your paths are crossed. If you haven't had the chance to get to know her, here's where she hangs out. Tell her her not-so-secret admirer sent you.
Happy birthday, my love. To 120 and beyond.
