Reshma Turns 17...

So there is this sentence. It has 8 letters, 6 vowels, 
and it combines into 3 words, I LOVE YOU!!!!

Today Reshma, our niece turns 17.  Let me start by saying that she is smarter than anyone I know.
 I thought I was smart, but then she showed up and from the minute she was able to pick up a
book this girl just absorbs knowledge like no one I know.   Arvid is always amazed by her.

Reshma was born in Rochester New York.  Grew up in Florida and now lives in Vermont.
  I think that even before she was born her parents knew they had a handful coming their
way.  Let's just say that before you make any statement just make sure you have
 your facts correct otherwise, she will definitely give you the correct facts.

This "little" girl is growing up too fast.  Luckily, I am part of her life. and hopefully
 always will be. Like all my nieces and nephews, Reshma has a hold on my heart and,
 whatever it is any of them needs, I am always here.  For me it's only a plane flight.

As a baby this little one loved her chicken wings, and they had to be spicy.
 I enjoyed watching her eat.  It reminds me of me.  Today she of course like all kids
 her age is more picky.  Once as I was visiting her in Rochester she just
picked up these spicy wings and ate them up.  Loved every moment.

Reshma I hope you know that I am always here for you.  For all of you. I and proud
to be your aunt and to be a part of your life.  We may not live close by, but we do
have so many means of communicating with each other.  Never let anything or anyone
 change that.  For me NOTHING or NO ONE ever can nor will.  EVER!!

Reshma, I loved you from day ONE, and never stopped.  Never will.
Happy Birthday from us.  Brutus in kitty heaven is also sending you hugs and kisses.

Though it might sound crazy, but it’s true that without having a niece like you,  my life 
would have remained incomplete. Wishing you a happy birthday from my heart.  Reshma, i
your eyes I see the promise of a brighter tomorrow, a better world for all and the chance
 for peace. Tall order, I know, but you are brave and strong and smart. You can do it.
 May life always shower you with love, kindness and all things wonderful.

I love you Reshma, because you give me a smile that always stays...
