My sister-in-law, Beth, is one of my very favorite people--an endless source of funny stories, good advice, and gentle guidance. She is unbelievably patient, always kind, and game for almost any sort of adventure. I love my time with her and wish she didn't live four hours away.
Did I mention that she and her husband have seven (yes, SEVEN) children, all home-schooled? Their house in northern Kentucky is happily chaotic, filled with hamsters, hermit crabs, kids, friends, bicycles, coats, projects, and lots of love. It is awe-inspiring.
Happy birthday, Beth!
