Infinite Possibilities

Today, let's all celebrate the birthday of a woman who has always taught me to reach for the sky and never look down. (Well, except when climbing palm trees.) Happy, happy, HAPPY Birthday Dixie Jane!

This is for you, Mom!
And this, too.
(And I couldn't forget this.)

Happy Birthday dear lady and laurie's mom! I enjoy your comments.

Happy Birthday, Dixie Jane! Love seeing your comments every day!

The clips are great. Danny Kaye is a big fave, and Fly Me to the Moon is my travel guide.

I am humbled by your birthday wishes, Laurie, and four of my favorites singing and dancing for me. Looking back it was heart-wrenching to once again hear from Yakpate. My dearest, Pat, I love you so much.

I feel extremely blessed to have my two daughters, my dear little sister and three grandchildren to help make life worth living. Although I must say, this past year has been challenging. I have a new one coming up. Join me, all Laurie's bloggers. We'll make it really great.

Love, love, love Laurie

Dixie Jane said...

Thank you, Judy. Shades of my singing days. It was a rare segment of my life that I shall always remember. You know, you and your beautiful voice were there too.

Many happy returns, Dixie!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my big sister who also taught me to reach for the sky, who gave me the love of a mother and made me part of her special, magical, joyful, singing, dancing family.

Happy Birthday, Dixie Jane! Love you much!

Happy birthday from me too Dixie Jane. This is fabulous reading all your good wishes.

Yes, may the next half of the year be full of good health and wonder (I like wonder; I wouldn't trust anyone who didn't)

Shanna said...

Now I know the origin of that "Moses supposes..." so often quoted in our home. Great bit!!!

(It's the third "this" in Laurie's links.)

Happy Birthday Dixie Jane! I hope you're having fun there. If you were here, I'd give you a big hug and maybe even a pinch to grow an inch.

Remember the birthday when we danced on the cruise ship? That was such fun. Next time, let's make it Hawaii. It shouldn't be too hard to convince L :)

This is what I get for doing my surfing at night--always late to the party. Looks like there's still enough cake to go around, though. Here's to a beautiful year beginning right now. Happy birthday, Dixie Jane!

Dixie Jane said...

All these warm wishes, all these lovin' people. It really seems like I had a party and you all came and brought me chocolates to go with the champagne and music and beautiful words. Thank you all so much for being here and being my family and my unseen friends. One day we shall meet and make up for loss time. I love you, each and every one of you.

Dixie Jane,

One more happy birthday wish before the day is over...that you will aways have a heart that keeps on singing with blue skies and kites flying high above!

Laurie said...

This is great! Like having a virtual birthday party!

Thanks, everyone.
