The date was August 19, 1988. I was holding a newborn baby girl with the bluest eyes I had ever seen. Hmmm... what to name this little cutie? Darryl and I decided to name her 'Hillary' and to give her my grandmother's name for her middle name 'Ruth'.
"What a pretty name,". She told me... "It means Cheerful Companion"!
For in all of my adventures.... and misadventures of the last couple of decades....
My 'Cheerful Companion' has been right there by my side to keep me smiling and laughing.
To my beautiful, blue-eyed, Boo Bear: I am so proud of you ... and I love you more!
HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY Hillary Ruth!!!
