IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! ON THIS DAY, 28 YEARS AGO, AT 4:00 IN THE AFTERNOON, YOU WERE ALL BLESSED CUZ I WAS BORN. AND YES I'M WRITING IN ALL CAPS CUZ IT'S MY. DAY.
Instead of writing a post about how awesome I am, I asked the people who are closest to me to share their favorite stories about me:
From my Dad:
From my Sister:
From my Mom: My favorite story of Crystal was at the baccalaureate for her high school graduation. The graduation speaker, the pastor of the church, was in the middle of his speech/sermon when he said "The other day, Crystal said..." I was terrified because I know Crystal and her mouth is sometimes no holds barred. Luckily, he was referencing a conversation they had where she brought up some really important information, but for a few seconds...I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing.
From my Godmother: My favorite Crystal story is when she was in my Primary Sunday School class, and our then very talkative Pastor stopped by and in his usual style, talked forever to a group of 4-9 year olds. Upon finishing his talk, he asked if there were any questions. No one spoke a word. He then asked if anyone knew what he was talking aobut, and My Lil Diva spoke up. "My Dad says nobody ever knows what you are talking about," and if that was not enough, she said "my Dad says you go on forever, last Sunday 52 minutes, the Sunday before 48 minutes," and she then proceeded to count down the number of minutes of his last 4 or 5 sermons. The Pastor vanished, and never returned to the Primary class again.
Youth Director at Church: My favorite Crystal story was from my days as the Youth Director at our church. The group was having a conversation on being responsible, respectful, no drinking alcoholo or doing drugs when Crystal asked "Do you drink alcholol?" and I stated well yes, I do Crystal, sometimes. She proceeded to say it's ok because so does my mom but she calls it "Mommy Juice." I fell in love with her right then and there...
