Here's to my #1 Daughter-in-Law, Rebekah!!!
Happy Birthday, dear Bek!

(Disclaimer:  I am not a poet. I don't have a creative bone in my body. I know the following is cheesey, so I am apologizing in advance. Love ya, Bek!!!)

Ode to Coach Bekie on her 34th Birthday

You are my sunshine, one of my Sunshines,
You make me happy when hope is lost
You have perspective, you have persistence
Please don’t let that laundry get you down.

Thank you, Coach Bekie, Thank you for Jesse,
Because of you, dear, my hair’s sassy.
I love the freedom, I love the feeling,
(My hair says...) "Please don’t ere flatten me again."

You are amazing, you are inspiring,
You sort through this life like no one else,
I need your wisdom, respect your courage,
Please don’t take that ensign away.

You are my idol, you are my hero,
You’ve helped me expand (literally!) when all was lost
You understand me, I understand you,
Please know you’ve taught me charity.

Bek, I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day complete with
Ice Chamber icing!
 Love that girl!!!
p.s. Good luck with that Stake Conference assignment. Can't wait to hear the scoop!!! xoxoxoxox


  1. Not fer nuthin but if you keep writing me odes like that then I won't be able to persist in my persecution complex! Then what will I have to live for? Seriously, though, thank you so much. That gave me a much needed pick me up. I am feeling the love and it truly warms my shrivelled heart. You have given me so much this year of your time, energy, love, understanding and support. That alone is the best gift but to add these sentiments just overwhelms me with gratitude. thank you so much for your love and patience with me!


  2. Anything for you, Coach Bekie!!! xoxoxoxo
