A Star is Born

Pat and I received a gift this week and were so touched by the gesture, we wanted to share it with all of you.

My friend Jenn had a star named after Brienna.  We received a framed certificate from the International Star Registry with the newest star in the Ursa Major constellation:  Brienna Marie Marr.  We have the coordinates, a map of where it is and instructions for how best to locate our shining star.

We were totally surprised, are beyond grateful and so touched. The message on the gift read, “whenever you are feeling down, look up at your shining star”.  I will indeed … and as we embark on 2010, I will ask you to do the same.  I know Brienna is there, watching over all of us.

And as Pat pointed out, I have very good friends … so thank you Jenn.  We appreciate it more than you will ever know.
