Birthday Magic for David

May 16th is our brother David's birthday.....

David decided to spend his birthday with our mom down at the beach in Port Aransas. His girlfriend Amanda and his good friend Jason came along for some family fun in the sun. Our sister Lisa and her wonderful family joined them. What a gift for everyone to be together!

David, his friend Jason and our brother in-law Victor spent the morning on the beautiful beach lined golf course. David's present to himself. What was about to happen is a gift that he will cherish for the rest of his life!

First part of the course he lost his driver head cover along the way and for some reason when he backtracked it was nowhere to be found. What was found instantly was this beautiful bright cardinal driver head cover staring straight at him. It was love at first sight and he had to have it! Now if he hadn't lost his driver head cover, he may have passed this gift off not wanting to waste money on something he didn't really need. (I think someone up above knew that and wanted him to have it!)Second thing that happened is going to blow you away! David hit his golf ball into the ruff of the sand dunes (and when i say ruff, that's exactly what it is). You don't find your balls in those dunes. He decided to look anyway since it didn't go to far off and he saw exactly where it went. Well, he went to that spot and his ball was nowhere to be found - Nowhere! But.... he came back to the course with a ball that said "Happy Birthday" on it! How magical was that? (Again, I think someone above had their eyes on David!)

Then, after the guys calm down from the amazement of what had just happened on that course, they went on to play the next course. David will be the first to admit that he not a very good golfer (yet), but has fun playing, even if it takes several shots to make the hole. Well, on this particular day and following the events that already occurred, another magical moment is about to happen. DAVID HIT A HOLE IN ONE!!!!

And the crazy thing about all this - just the night before he had text to me that he didn't think our sister Mary has been with him lately. HA! HAPPY BIRTHDAY lil brother - Mary will always be with you!

Sounds like Mary was there all the time...

Don't know if you like my early work from Japan (1953-1956) but thought I'd pimp the site anyway. You can delete the comment if you wish. No hard feelings.
