|Mel's cake from Mum, last year. Mum did the writing & the sun. I did the flowers, but wasn't trusted to do the 3 lines together--also known as "grass."|

Today I send birthday wishes to family friend Mel. She is one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I know. She is the kind of person who makes the world better for the people who are fortunate enough to be in her world.
I sometimes refer to her as Crossword Puzzle Mel because she is a wiz at them! Mum moved here last week, but until then, almost every Sunday, Mum & Mel did the Washington Post crossword puzzle together for years. I'm sure
|Hubby John with Mel on my Lake House moving day.|
But perhaps I can try my hand at writing a crossword puzzle clue: 3 letter word that represents kindness, compassion, patience, devotion, friendliness, loyalty, & hugs.
HaPpY BirThDaY, MeL!
|May today bring you much luck & may your wishes come true!|
Sending you much LOVE on this day, and always! :-) Hal
