Merry Christmas! Day Seven

Which means today is Maupin's birthday. Happy birthday, dear brother! Maupin is my nearest sibling in age, but he is nine years older than I. He's a remarkable man in so many ways. Kind, gentle, full of laughter, and easy going. I don't think I've ever seen him RUSH to do anything. When I was little, he was my favorite toy. And he put up with it too - amazing.

Happy Birthday, Maupin!

I must say, his beard is amazing. I envy it.

Blessings to you both!

And I thought you were sporting a new liturgical beard... just kidding. ;-)
